Dear Customer - Your parents would not be entitled to any special notice. The public notice would be the same as for anyone since the court records are public but there would be no special notice sent to your parents if you are over 18. No one under 18 could even apply for a name change.
I cannot see why the sheriff would deliver anything. You would simply be filing a name change action in the probate court. The court will publish in whatever paper they use so you have no control over where it is published.
can't change your grandfather's name and the Social Security Number would have to be addressed with the Social Security office. That is a Federal issue and the state court cannot change the number. I have no way of knowing when the action would be published but if they told you that it could be done by February then I would assume the case would be published immediately.
If the court finds that your are trying to deceive creditors by changing your identity your application could be denied. That will be up to the court so I can't tell you what they will decide.
Yes you can change your name to your grandfather's. I thought you wanted to change your grandfather's name. Sorry I misunderstood.
