What issues should arise after the name change as far as my other ownership such as home ownership, credit reports, credit cards, vehicle registrations and so on
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 3 months ago

You just take the order signed by the judge and send copies to any of your creditors and they would update the accounts to reflect your name change. It doesn't affect your credit or anything like that as everything would just roll over to your maiden name since your SSN and DOB don't change here..

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.
