QUESTIONS

  • I need names ADDED to filed certificates, not changed. There are no court order forms for this as required by the Office of Vital Records (R9-114 thru R9-118) This set of twins only needs to add given names, not change their surnames. The forms available are not accurate for this situation and cannot be used without major adjustments. Need these certificates immediately for plane travel requiring ID. HELP
  • I have a 12 year old son, who has a hyphenated last name. He wants to drop one of the hyphened names so that we have the same last name. His bio father never signed the birth certificate and has never been in the picture. Do I need to contact the bio father in order to get the name change? Or can I do the name change without notifying him? As stated, my son's bio father never signed the birth certificate and has never been in the picture.
  • Can I get a new birth certificate with my new name after a name change. I heard I can but I still want to make sure. Can that even be possible. What do I have to go through to get a new birth certificate with only my new name.
