Thank you for your reply.
There is no process for getting an "also known as" name that is a common law name. The only way to get legal ID in that name is ***** ***** be to file a legal name change in court and change his name to exjake and if not then FB will generally not allow the name to be used. There is no other legal process to get an "AKA" name made official and by the very nature of what it is, a common law name or nickname, that is why there is no other legal process as common law means it is not legal or statutory, it is an assumed name.
