This article is being written to conclude and recap my series on changing one’s name in the state of Florida. I felt it was necessary to write on this topic due to the fact that the process of obtaining a name change can become complicated, even though it may seem straightforward. Mishandling the process can result in one’s name change being delayed or, worse, denied. The goal of my recent articles was to provide information which will assist people in better understanding their situation. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of an attorney. If you are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a Melbourne lawyer. We also assist individuals in other Brevard County areas and throughout the state.
I addressed multiple topics over my recent articles. The issues which I looked at included:
- The Florida process for changing a name
- The benefits of a name change
- Why you should hire an attorney to handle your name change
There are multiple reasons why I chose to address these issues. First, there are several steps which must be followed when obtaining to change one’s name. These steps exist for good reason as they help to prevent fraud. Failing to follow these procedures, however can result in one’s case being denied. Second, there can be many benefits to changing a name. These can include simplified family relationships, not having to explain the difference between the name you go by and your legal name, and more. Finally, retaining counsel to assist you can help to ensure that your case is handled properly.
