New Jersey Family Law Attorney Discusses Name Changes
As an experienced New Jersey Family Law Attorney I constantly get asked how people can change their names. If you’re looking to get a name change in New Jersey or you’re looking to have your child’s name changed in New Jersey, there’s several things you have to know. First, if you’re looking to get a name changed due to a divorce, you don’t need to file a separate proceeding. You can do that all through the divorce order.
However, if you or your child is looking to get their name changed for any other reason, you have to do a separate name-change proceeding. Within that name-change proceeding, we would file the complaint; you’d have to have that order published; then you’d go back for a final hearing, where that order would be published; and then you’d send a letter to the treasury; and your name would officially be changed.
Do you have questions about changing your name? If so, contact the experienced New Jersey Family Law Attorney Brian Freeman.
