What a name change attorney in Cartersville or Calhoun does

When a couple marries, a wife can use her husband’s name without filing any paperwork. But in Georgia, you cannot change your name for a reason other than marriage without petitioning the court, paying court fees and making an announcement in your local paper. A Hood Law Firm, LLC family lawyer from Hood Law Firm, LLC can assist you in the following ways:

  • Divorce decree preparation. It’s easier to change your name after you and your spouse divorce if the change is indicated in the divorce decree. Our attorneys can draft a decree that includes your legal name change.
  • Gathering paperwork. Once you successfully petition the court, you must begin the process of changing your name on other legal documents. We can help you gather those documents, and we make suggestions about other areas you may miss on your own.
  • Attending court. A judge wants assurance that you’re not changing your name in an attempt to defraud anyone. We represent your best interests in court and defend your reasons for the change before the judge.

We have assisted hundreds of clients with their family law needs. Our attorneys have the necessary skills to help you with your legal name change. We guide you through the process to ensure that no steps are missed.
