Northern Virginia Legal Name Change Lawyers
There can be any number of reasons that a person might choose to seek a name change, including reverting back to one’s maiden name after a divorce, for career-based reasons, to avoid fraud or identity theft and many others. Before your name change is approved, you must first petition the court. You would do well to consult an experienced Virginia name change lawyer.
Some people might be inclined to seek a name change on their own, only to find the process to be much more complex than they originally anticipated. The northern Virginia family law attorneys at Hale Ball can help you through the process and address any issues in an efficient and professional manner.
Our experience in these matters allows us to identify the potential issues that could create delays in the approval of your petition. We ensure that all necessary forms are thoroughly and accurately completed so as to avoid any unnecessary hold up in processing.
Helping You Make a Smooth Transition
When you hire our firm, we will provide a thorough review of your circumstances and the reasons you are seeking a name change. While such occurrences are extremely rare, the court does have the authority to deny your petition for a name change. During our review, we will alert you to any potential red flags and work to guide you through the process in a way that avoids them.
If you are in the process of a divorce and wish to revert back to your maiden name, that request can be fulfilled as part of the divorce agreement. If your divorce has already been finalized and you did not request the change, however, you will need to submit a petition to change your name.
