Why Name Changes Occur

Some of the most common reasons people wish to legally change their name are family laws and circumstances such as divorce or adoption. Others, on the other hand, may be faced with more complex circumstances that demand an immediate and covert identity change.

Whichever your reason for changing your name, a Paterson Name Change Lawyer can help you through the entire process and ensure that you have a stress-free identity change journey. Our attorneys have the necessary knowledge and will gladly assist you.

Name Change Process in Paterson

You can change your name in Paterson at any time by getting a court order. Nonetheless, the court will make certain that you are not requesting a change in order to commit fraud or dodge criminal accusations.

Most of the time, your request to change your identification will be granted without the slightest hesitation. Still, in your application form, you should explain why you wish to change your name.

You must first file a request for a name change in order for the court to grant you the right to change your identity. You can learn how to do this at the Superior Court’s Law Division.

Remember to provide your current name as well as your reasoning for changing it. More crucially, in your application, you must declare under oath that you are not changing your name for unlawful reasons, such as escaping criminal prosecution or loan collections.

The name change request form must be accompanied by other documents, such as the Civil Case Information Statement and Order for Fixed Date of Hearing. You should also find out what expenses you will have to pay and prepare for them.

The second step is to place name change announcements in local publications for a set length of time. This is done to ensure that there are no formal complaints or vested interests. After this time, you must tell the court clerk that you have completed the published announcements.

Finally, appearing in court will officially validate your request to change your name. Before a judge can grant you the right to modify your name, you must verify that you are not changing your name to avoid obligations or criminal trials.

The procedure, however, does not end with a court appearance. Before you can start using your new identity for any kind of legal activity, you must get your name change order announced in the media and alert public agencies.

Hire A Bhatt Law Group Paterson Name Change Lawyer

Although there are no laws in Paterson that require you to hire an attorney to help you formally change your name, the process can be cumbersome at times.

Furthermore, if you lack legal experience, meeting the standards may be more difficult. In this case, it can be tough to ensure that you’ve done every stage of the method correctly and that there are no inappropriate systems or reporting issues.

Think about the fact that a person may be denied the right to change their identification due to a judge’s judgment in specific circumstances. As a result, anyone thinking about changing their name should really speak with a Paterson Name Change Lawyer first.

Paterson Name Change Lawyer FAQs

What criteria do judges consider when deciding on a name change?

When deciding on a name change petition, judges consider a variety of issues. The reasons for the name change, the applicant’s profession, and any criminal backgrounds or pending allegations are the most common.

Is there a chance that my request to change my identification will be denied?

There is always the chance that the judge will turn down your plea to change your name. For example, if the moniker you want to use is likely to cause misunderstanding or embarrassment, you may be denied.

A name change may also be denied if it offends or misinforms the public. The same is true for document errors, such as not including enough information on your paperwork or failing to publish a name change statement.

How can I clearly show that I notified the appropriate people or government agencies?

Once you have submitted copies of the proper publications to the relevant government entities, you must go to court and file Proof of Mailing. This evidence attests to the fact that you handed your documents to the right authorities on time.

You must also tell the court that the papers have been delivered to the right recipients. You must also swear in the Proof of Mailing that all of your claims are true.

Don’t forget to include the post office’s green receipt cards as proof to the court that the documents you provided were received by the appropriate parties.

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

With one major exception, the procedure for altering a child’s name under the age of 18 is substantially identical to that of adults. However, the paperwork must be copied and given to the child’s other biological or adoptive parent.

It should be transmitted by certified mail with a return receipt. This procedure allows the child’s other parent to challenge the name change.

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.
