Name Changes


There are many reasons why people choose to change their name, but regardless of the reasoning behind it, it needs to go through the proper legal process. While most individuals change their name after marriage or divorce, there are people who wish to change their names at other times. Generally speaking, you are allowed to change your name to whatever you’d like and can do this several times if you wish. However, there are some guidelines around things like changing your name to escape debt collection, to commit a crime, to intentionally mislead, and other regulations, so it’s good to work with a qualified attorney to ensure that your name change goes smoothly.
