Understanding the Name Change Process

The process for legally changing your name varies depending on the circumstances and reasons behind the change. It typically involves filing a petition with the court, publishing notices in local publications (if required), and obtaining a court order that legally recognizes the change of name. This process ensures that your new name is legally recognized for all purposes, including on identification documents, in educational records, and within employment records.
