Hello and thank you for using our service. My name is Guillermo Senmartin and I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help you. Believe me that I will try my best to give you a solution if one exists, but sometimes the law does not have a good one.In what state do you live in? Are you a U.S. Citizen?
I am a US resident and i live in Charlotte NC. I am not doing a marriage name change etc. I'm trying to get my name legally changed as well as my gender marker ( i know that is a bit more complicated process)
Yes sorry, I am a US citizen
I am not sure why you are not responding, but I will still try to help you. You can and probably should do the name change yourself. Below is a link to the step by step process on how to change your name:http://www.ncfcc.us/adult-name-change/
The process should be the same in very court in North Carolina including the courts in Charlotte.Unfortunately, the form for a name change which is AOC-SP-601 is not available for download.You may have to go to the courts in your city and request the form from the Clerk of the Court. If you have the time and patience and don’t have the money to burn, you should do it yourself.If you have the money to burn or to not have the time, then you should consider hiring an attorney.
