Name Change Packet
Sometimes young people want to change their names, first or last or both names. Under many circumstances, that is legally OK. Sometimes a name was changed due to an adoption, but not all of the steps were taken to notify important governmental sources. These materials contain many of the items used to obtain a name change and to update government documents. Many things you might be able to do for yourself with this information. However, you would be well advised to contact your local legal aid program and request a lawyer to help you with any name change or for answers to related legal questions you might have.
