Names can be one of the most distinct methods of identification we are given. When you do not like your name, whether you are named after someone you do not like, wish to sever associations with another family member or have always gone by another name, it can be frustrating. At Murray Law Offices, we help clients in South Carolina change their name to accomplish their goals.
It is a judge who determines whether to grant or refuse a name change. Our legal services attorneys understand the importance of intentionally creating or defining your existence through the legal system. Name changes are typically a fast legal process; it's about filing the right paperwork. We represent clients seeking to change their name - first, middle, last or all three.
There are few restrictions on changing your name. You may be restricted from changing your name for any of the following reasons:
- To defraud creditors
- If you are currently in bankruptcy
- To avoid registration as a sex offender or as a child abuser
- To hide illegal activities
- If you have ever been denied a passport or are on any terrorist watch lists
