I had my divorce papers done on mydivorcepapers.com. I have

Hello! I had my divorce papers done on mydivorcepapers.com. I have filed the petition with Oklahoma county court. The decree of divorce does not have our SSN's printed on the form. The lines are blank. Can I fill in the SSN's by hand before the judge. I also want to have my name changed back to my maiden name. Can that be changed as well? I am trying to speed this up and don't have the money to pay for new documents or to pay to file again. My husband is refusing to sign until the changes are made. I did not have him served, we met with the papers and he was to sign and mail them back but now refuses to do so. What can I do?

I was told by NJ DMV, that I need to legally change my

I was told by NJ DMV, that I need to legally change my misspelled middle name on my birth certificate, to be able to get my NJ drivers License. I was born in NY, and have lived in DE for 16 years. I have recently moved to Howell, NJ. I have printed the necessary forms, but think I might need a Lawyer to get a Court Order for the change. Is that right? If so, how do I go about this?

I am helping my sister subdivide a parcel in Riverside

I am helping my sister subdivide a parcel in Riverside county, Ca. The APN is ************. When my sister bought the property in 2010 she was using her married last name, she is no longer legally married and now uses her maiden name. I contacted a well known title company here in California to obtain a "subdivision guarantee" along with an updated title report and scedule B documents. The title company has told us that if my sister plans to keep the new subdivided lots in her name and if she is now using her maiden name (she is, as I mentioned above) then a document is needed and we need the assistance of a real estate attorney. I want to know if that is in fact true or can my sister fill out the form herself?Here is the a portion of the email from the title company:_________________________________________________________I see the last deed of record is where she took title as Diana *********, a married woman as her sole and separate property, which is what our title report will reflect at this time.If this is no longer the case, and if she is to sign the map with her maiden name, steps will need to be taken to correct this.Does Michelle have an attorney that can assist in getting a document drawn and executed for the name change purpose?___________________________________________________I am attaching the document (its not on letterhead or anything that looks official) I got this document from title company, I need to know if I have to use an attorney? Can my sister fill out herself, maybe through notary?

My birth certificate is in the name of Laurie Kingsley. I

My birth certificate is in the name of Laurie Kingsley Wright. I live in California and 25 years ago dropped the "Wright" and have been known as Laurie Kingsley in all areas of my life, including legal documents, bank accounts, drivers license, social security number, etc. My passport is expired and in my name as shown on my birth certificate. I'd like to renew the passport in the name I use for everything, but don't have a court order to validate it. After all this time, do I still need to obtain a court order?

I was married when I was a teen. My son was born 1967.

Hi .I was married when I was a teen . My son was born 1967. Shortly after that I got divorced. I worked out of state for 15 years. Meanwhile my x got remarried to a man named Baker [last mane] and divorced again. She then married a third time and the third husband raised my son the majority of his childhood. He was not legally adopted. He used the name Baker all his life. In his early 20's he got a pass port in the name of Baker. He now wants to get another one but they won't issue one in Baker. He always thought he was a Baker until this happened. I thought he knew he was legally under my name but used Baker because he honoured the man Baker or really thought Baker was his biological father. When he found this out it made an already stained mother son relationship worse. What or how should he straighten out the his name and passport. I was happy to know that he wasn't punishing me with keeping the Baker name but I think he is happy also to know the truth and his true heritage.Thank you.
