It isn't unusual for people with privacy concerns to seek to have a legal name change. Moreover, if a person is a victim of a crime, such as identity theft, credit card fraud, or stolen tax returns, there may be a big impetus to obtain a fresh identity which isn't tainted by the past. The victim may be seeking protection from a stranger, or even someone that is close to them.

Whether the cause be identity theft, an abusive domestic partner, or any other matter of personal privacy, a name change can often aid in one’s moving on from unfortunate past events. It is important to note that while most name changes are a matter of public record, one can request that a name change be sealed by the court in order to preserve their safety.


Irrespective of your personal impetus to obtain a legal name change, trust the Law Office of Simon Goldenberg PLLC to guide you though the process with due respect, sensitivity, and care.
