Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help if I can. Do you have any specific questions? I just want to make sure that I understand what legal information you are seeking.
I understand your point of view. Unfortunately, I don't know of any legal way to force vital records to change your name back to what you've used your entire life. In fact, while unfair, the payment of $248 is a relatively inexpensive way to get this straightened out. Legal actions can often cost thousands of dollars. it would cost you more to sue the county to get this figured out than the $248 ... unless you can find an attorney to handle it pro bono (i.e., for free).
To that end, you may be able to get help from the Legal Aid office nearest Knox County Texas:
I am truly sorry that my answer may be bad news for you, but please understand that it would be unfair to you (and unprofessional of me) to provide you with anything less than an honest response. However, if your concerns were not satisfactorily addressed, then please let me know, and I will be happy to clarify my answer.
Hello again. I didn't hear back from you, so I'm just checking in to make sure that you don't need more help on this issue. If not, then please remember to provide a positive rating (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so I greatly appreciate it). Thank you!
