Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello there -
Social Security ARE sticklers about using the correct name and will do things like this quite often. So, if I understand you correctly, you are going in front of this judge to simply grant an order to you confirming that your current legal name is "XXXXXXXXX" and there was a simple one letter misspelling at some point in the past - but going forward your name is ***** ***** will be spelled XXXXX. Is that the kind of court order you are seeking so that social security will accept it and you can begin receiving benefits for yourself and your child?
And you believe that the judge assisgned to the case will give you a problem with this request because of his past dealings with your husband and your husband's company?
