Hi Nancy Jo. My name's Lane. I can help here.


I hold a law degree, (Juris Doctorate), with concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law, an MBA, with specialization in financial accounting & tax, a BBA, and CFP & CRPS designations, as well - I’ve been providing financial, Social Security/Medicare, estate, corporate, non-profit, and tax advice, since 1986.


Applying for a name change is one of the more complicated procedures. First, they will NOT accept photocopies or notarized copies 9only originals)


They also won't accept a receipt showing that you applied for the document.


Finally, all documents must be current (not expired).


Now, there is a grid (a choice of document for proving the various things that must be proved for a name change) BUT they sometimes will a document that is acceptable for two purposes. (a U.S. passport as proof of both citizenship and identity, for example).


I can get into the details here, but first can you tell me what reasona they give for denial?

Sorry for the typos - The site is not letting me edit for some reason [proven] ... [(only originals)]
