Filing a name change petition is a relatively simple and straight forward process. If you can provide me with the state in which you are living, I can usually provide you with a name change packet (or at a minimum links to where to find this information) so that you can complete this with the court.
The process usually takes between 3-8 weeks (including the time for publication in a local newspaper) and requires a single court hearing.
