She has to prove her name changed from one name to the other. I have copies of all documents but

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Thank you for your question.

I am afraid that state law forbids any expert on this site from actually representing you or any other customer on the site. If you need local counsel, please use the same sites used by other attorneys, http://www.hg.org or http://www.lexmundi.com
