I need an attorney that understands New York State Non Profit organization law. Our organization the Western New York Pioneer League wants to change the name of the group to the Genesse Valley Revitalization Guild. The form to use for that purpose is on line with the New York State Dept. of State. It is very confusing as to how to fill it out. I called the state office and they said that they are not in the position to help me fill it out. They suggested that I talk with an attorney about the matter. Here is the link on the form that has to be filled out. http://www.dos.ny.gov/corps/nfpcorp.html#damendPlease advise.Al Jamison

My daughter enrolled at Algonquin College as Ashley, then

Hi, my daughter enrolled at Algonquin College as Ashley, then decided to change her name to Ashton (she's seeking gender re-assignment). Algonquin changed her name to Ashton without a legal name change document. Now I am unable to get the RESP money for her because it's under Ashley but the school doesn't have Ashley registered. What's my best course of action here?

I want to change my last name to my maiden name. I am

I want to change my last name to my maiden name. I am required by the Colorado Law that I have completed the fingerprint cards to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and FBI. I received the letters from them. CBI states that I have a clean record in Colorado. FBI says in the letter, "A search of the fingerprints provided by this individual has revealed prior arrest data at the FBI. This does not preclude further criminal history at the state or local level." I was surprised and I read next pages. I truly forgot about my past. I was a teenager when I was arrested for shoplifting in 1975 in Rochester, New York and charged as theft. It was misdemeanor and I completed the charge. I think I paid the fine. In 1978 I was arrested in Austin Texas for shoplifting (with my friend) and I was charged theft. (Charge 1) That is it. It does not say if it was completed. I am very upset and I forgot about my past. I don't remember if I did pay the fine, but I remember that my late husband told me that he paid the fine for me because I did not have a job at that time. I don't understand what FBI says above. Will they arrest me or what? Will it be a problem if I go ahead to the court in Denver and pay $100 to change my last name to my maiden name? Will it hurt me if I apply for a part time job if I change it to my maiden name?

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 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?
