Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
This is a Marine base, we normally have Naval lawyers free to us but all the comotion over here they don't want the navy here for now, the Marine Captain that took his spot is on the slower side, no legal history, he googled my questions, he seems to be of no help to me. He suggested this site.
I'm not sure if a standard form will work. My twin brother had to send in finger prints and do so many things he couldn't even remember all the steps he had to go through, he was in the same situation as me. I pay taxes to Colorado, i was born in Ohio. For the standard petition i read that you already have to have a name established.
Thank you for asking Just Answer,
Let me also thank you for your service to our country. The prior expert is correct that you need to do a formal name change in Colorado, since that is the state that you are paying taxes and is your formal "residence."
You are correct that there are lots of hoops to go through to get a Colorado name change, including fingerprinting. Here is a link to the Colorado name change self help website. http://www.courts.state.co.us/Forms/Forms_List.cfm?Form_Type_ID=25
I would suggest you review the Instructions for a name change and see if you can do this yourself. If not, you may have to hire a private attorney or you may be able to find a JAG Officer at a Colorado base that can help you.
