Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
The easiest way to resolve this is to petition for a name change.You pay the small filing fee and go in front of the judge here and he grants you a name change.You would then submit it to vital statistics and they issue an amended birth certificate.This puts it all in your current name and no problems.You would need to submit the orders to SS and DMV, anybody else you need to get it corrected.
Here are the forms you need to do this yourself.
You need to fix it now because it will continue to cause you problems.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.I wish you the best here.
You are welcome.The name change is real simple just a petition here and you go to judge's uncontested docket, he asks a few questions and signs the orders.Thanks about it to get name to match up to what you want legally.
