Help With Legal Name Changes
There are several reasons why someone may want to have a name change done. It may involve wanting to restore your maiden name following a divorce, to honor a stepparent or other relative or for a variety of other reasons. In some cases, people simply do not like their given name and wish to change it.
Wondering Where Or How To Change Your Name?
A legal name change is a straightforward process that can be done for a modest cost in a short period of time. The process involves filing a short petition in circuit court followed by a very brief court hearing and a subsequent publication of the petition in a newspaper in your city or county.
In my practice as a lawyer at The Bender Law Firm, I have handled several name changes and can provide the assistance you need if you wish to pursue a name change for whatever reason.
