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.

My Mom needs a California Senior ID card. The only legal

My Mom needs a California Senior ID card. The only legal document she has is her 1957 Certificate of Naturalization, however for some reason only the name 'Ida' appears on it, not her full name 'Idalia.' Other than going to court for a name change is there any way to prove her correct name to the DMV?

My name, that I have had since my memory serves me (I am 65

My name, that I have had since my memory serves me (I am 65 year old) is different than the name on my Birth Certificate. I have years of proof of my current name from 23 years in the Army, 18 years working as a Department of Defense Contractor holding a Top Secret Clearance, Drivers license, social security card, and a copy of a current passport that is missing. I have a Caribbean Cruise leaving on the 4th of June and I only have two options to get access the ship and the islands - a current Passport or my Military ID Card with a copy of my Birth Certificate.Therein lies my problem. I cannot find my Passport (and somehow the State Department resolved the discrepancy between my Birth Certificate and my current forms of identification and provided me a passport with my current name back in 2008) and my Military ID Card does not match my Birth Certificate.My Birth Certificate reads: Jan Gordon FletcherMy "actual" name is*****I live in Virginia and so I am wondering if I can petition the Circuit Court Clerk with my abundance of legal evidence of the name I have had for somewhere near 65 years and have them provide a formal document declaring my current name as legal based on maybe common law and avoid going to court with this. I am almost out of time...What advice can you provide?Mr. Fletcher

Is it possible to have two legal names under this scenario?1). I am a dual US/German citizen. I legally possess two passports and identification from both countries.My birth name is***** In 2009 I changed my legal name in the US to BBBB AAAA CCCC. Germany does not allow name changes, so my legal name in Germany remains AAAA BBBB CCCC.So, the question is, do I have two legal names? My intent is non fraudulent and both names are ***** ***** my SSN. My question is more of a theory question. I am not looking to do anything illegal.
