Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Ok, as long as you aren't doing it to avoid law enforcement or evade creditors, then a judge will approve it.

.

You would need to file an adult name change petition at the local courthouse and then publish notice in the local paper. The clerks will schedule a hearing date where you would appear and tell the judge why you want the name change. Then he will issue an order approving it. You would then take that order to any agencies to get your official documents like driver's license, passport, SS card, etc. changed to reflect your new name.

.

The clerks should have the name change petition forms you need to fill out and file..

.

.

thanks

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.
