Name Change

questions & answers

Question: Do all name changes have to publish? What if adult needs visa and the name is not what they went by and now the passport office is refusing to issue to US Armed Service member. How do you get around the publication issue if they are leaving on tour of duty forthwith. Is there not a special provision for this type of name change AND can they get one.

Answer: After 9/11, many of these laws became much stricter. The name change is done at the state level, but then you must properly notify a number of governmental agencies. I am unable to answer this question after you added in the US Armed Service fact. Since you are in the military, you may also be able to obtain assistance at the JAG office.
