Thank you very much for your patience. The only thing that you can do to verify that both names are ***** ***** to get a name change with the court. If the state where your birth certificate is says Rockwell on it, then that is going to be your legal name even if you go by a nickname like most people do. Therefore, if you want to be known by Rocky officially, then you're going to need to request a name change with your state court and they will have to enter a court order allowing you to do this. This will not invalidate all of the other documents that have Rockwell on it because the court order will show that you changed your name from Rockwell to Rocky, but to officially be known as Rocky, you will have to go through the court system.

Also, although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied. If you feel I have done so, please rate me 5 stars and let me know if you have any follow up questions. As a side note, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
