changing names?

Post by anastrophe »

has anyone here ever changed their legal name? i'm in the process of doing so, and it's pretty ridiculous. california law recognizes "common usage" as a legal way to change your name. i've used paul theodoropoulos as my name for at least forty years - but because that's different from my birth certificate, i've had to fork over $400 in fees and costs to make it "official", so that i can replace my social security card.

bureaucracy is a bane.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.
