We proudly represent clients throughout New Jersey for name change applications, including Atlantic County

It’s pretty common for people to feel inclined and encouraged to change their names. It could be for some factors, including a desire to rediscover themselves or begin a new life.

If you live in Atlantic County and want to modify a family member’s or your own name, Bhatt Law Group’s professional name change lawyers can help.

Working with an Atlantic County Name Change Lawyer

You must first file a claim with the court in order for the court to give you authority to change the name. When you work with Bhatt Law Group, our Atlantic County name change lawyer will assist you in completing the necessary documents:

  • Civil Case Information Statement
  • Verified Complaint about Name Change and related Certification
  • Order Fixed Date of Hearing

Suppose you want to consider changing your name but have been found guilty of a crime. In that case, you must provide duplicates of your documentation to the prosecutor in the area where you were convicted. This is also true if you are still being put on trial for a crime.

Our Atlantic County name change lawyer can also help you change a child’s identity. If the other parent disagrees with the claim, we will help you in providing proof that the modification is in the best interests of the child.

Reasons to Seek the Services of an Atlantic County Name Change Lawyer

In Atlantic County, a person can modify their name. One alternative available is filling out a form and submitting it to the County Superior Court. If you do it yourself, the entire process could cost as little as $250.

While this would seem to be a simple and straightforward procedure, there are a few other points to consider. The process includes:

  • A court hearing.
  • Press release of the decision.
  • Verification of other government bodies.

Keep in mind that a judge may rule that a person cannot change their name under certain circumstances. As a result, speaking with an Atlantic County name change attorney before attempting to change one’s name is a good idea.

In Atlantic County, there is no law requiring you to hire an attorney to help you during the name change process. However, as illustrated earlier, modifying a name can be challenging.

If you do not have legal training, it may be difficult to meet the standards. It is a difficult task to ensure that you have completed each step along the way and that there are no inappropriate services or filing mistakes.

Employing an Atlantic County name change attorney to help with the formal name change process has several benefits. Our attorneys will collaborate with you to obtain a better processing time, greater peace of mind, and, most importantly, a higher success rate.

FAQs Regarding Name Changes in Atlantic County

Before you go out and submit a name change request, it’s a good thing to know the complexities of the process. Among the most commonly asked questions in Atlantic County about modifying your name are here:

Why would a court deny my request to change a name?

It is not uncommon for a prosecutor to make the assumption that the change request was made maliciously. In some situations, the judge may believe that the filer is trying to elude creditors or is facing prosecution.

A concern with paperwork or a procedural issue is another significant reason for the occurrence. This may include refusing to publish a formal report in the news publication or making other filing errors.

Due to the applicant’s criminal history, a judge may ultimately deny a proposal for a name change. A judge may rule that changing one’s identity is not in the public’s best interest.

What differentiates the procedure for changing a child’s name from that of an adult?

Any caregiver with parental responsibility for a kid has the lawful authority to be given notice when a minor’s name is modified. They must also demonstrate that they have consented to pursue legal action against the child.

The basic principle is that both parental figures must approve a proposed change. As a result, there may well be a disagreement over whether or not the child’s name should be altered, entailing a court hearing.

As stated previously, the judge will later decide what is in the child’s best interests. As a result, the cause for the change must be significant and apparent.

Will I have to be present in the court hearing?

You may not be obligated to show up in court; it will depend on the judge assigned to your case. If you must come to court, our Atlantic County name change lawyer will prepare you and respond to the court’s questions in your favor.

Do the public notice requirements still apply if I modify my name for safety purposes?

The simple answer is no. You may be able to resist the publishing mandate if you modify your name for safety purposes. In addition, the judge will decide the name change application is publically unavailable. This is particularly the case for those who have been victims of violent crime.

What criteria will a judge consider in a lawsuit involving a name change?

A judge will highlight the filer’s profession, pending cases, and prior attempts to change the identity when evaluating an application for a name change.

The filer should also tactfully explain the justification for the name change. To avoid any potential dishonest intent, all of the above said factors should be regarded.

What can I do if my name change request is turned down?

The reason for the refusal will dictate what to do. If an applicant is denied on procedural grounds, you may simply resubmit the application, this time with the mistake resolved.

On the other hand, if a name change request is denied due to suspicions of fraud or a felony, you may file an appeal. If you didn’t have legal counsel for the initial lawsuit, you’d want one for the appeal.

Alright! These guys are amazing. I was devastated when I got a three tickets in New Jersey with 12 points in total and fines adding up over $1K. The officer was truly rude, unfair and just took out his bad day on me. At this point I had no idea what to do but I must find some legal help to fight this in court. After getting the tickets, I called a bunch of different law groups trying to see who can help me with this. I was able to talk to many of them and mostly all of them seemed like they wanted to see how much they can get out of me before even hearing out what my concerns where. Then I got around to calling Bhatt Law Group and I was welcome by this lady (whose name I don't know) and she was amazing. She listened and helped me be calm and gave me assurance I am in good hands. She offer pricing and it seemed very reasonable too. I made my payment and then I didn't have anything to worry about till the day of the virtual court. They figured out all my court dates and managed everything on the back end. They would give me updates on what the process is up to. Funny story, on the day of my virtual court session I overslept thinking my court time was at 11 am instead of 9 am and I had my attorney Devin Baer even giving me a call to get me out of bed to attend the zoom. I don't know how many attorneys would do that for their client. Devin was very helpful, professional and understanding. He gave me a call prior to my court session and gave important pointers and even through out the court session he made me feel confident and assure that everything will be okay. So these guys were friendly, helpful and professional but where there any results? OH YEAH! I was able to lower my fines and points to barely nothing. These guys are life savers and will help you legally in any situation where you have been treated unfairly. Thank you Bhatt Law.
