-Could you explain your situation a little more?Did you have some problems with this judge during his or her representation of you?
If this is a consented name change why would there be a conflict of interest?
Dear Customer - You can file a motion for the judge to recuse himself based on this. Whether that will happen I cannot say but this should be a very simple name change if no one is contesting the action. You can also file a complaint for judicial bias with the state supreme court as well as the Bar Association. If a local attorney has checked the form for any flaws and found none then this sounds like the judge has a ax to grind with you and that would be bias if the judge is also ruling on a current case.
