Name Change

What's in a Name?

Your name is generally the first thing other people see or hear about you. It defines you. Your name could make you blend in, or could stand you out from a crowd. Your current name could not match your personality or gender. It could be too “ethnic” or not “ethnic” enough. Or your child could bear the name of a person that is a negative influence on his or her life.

Changing your or your child’s name is a very deep, personal decision. It will affect your or your child’s everyday life, hopefully in a very positive way. A married couple hyphenating their surnames, or a gay or lesbian couple sharing surnames to make financial transaction more convenient.

In addition, we are seeing many clients who have been using a name that is not official and because of the new security requirements are required to have an official name change to keep a drivers license in the name they have become accustom to.

Whatever personalized reason you have to change your name, it only makes sense to have a personalized attorney who knows which documents to file with the court and when. There are certain circumstances that will be different for every client, and these circumstances will change the description and the amount of information needed to successfully change your name.

In most cases, we can even change the name on your birth certificate.

Client Reviews
"As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently..." Michael Starling
"I've had Mr. Goldman do my entire estate planning as well as my gun trust. I highly recommend him and his firm. If you're planning a gun trust, trust no one else Mr. Goldman is one of if not the best versed on this topic." Howard
“Great service is an understatement. We bought several properties that Mr. Goldman handled for his clients. The communication and explanation of everything was terrific. I would definitely recommend him for all of your real estate needs.” Kassandra

Not only did Attorney Goldman assure me they could take care of this his office was wonderful. Jennifer was assigned to my case and she was wonderful and were able to guide another probate case I had saving me additional time and frustration. Highly recommend this office.” Debbie
