Name Change Court Order – Decree Changing Name
A Name Change Court Order is the one reliable way to get government ID and Official Records changed. Legal Name Change usually means changed by Superior Court Order. And, a court order must be signed by a Superior Court Judge. Then, a Court Clerk must Certify and put the Court’s Seal on it. Social Security, Passports, School, Bank Accounts, and DMV all honor a Certified Copy of it immediately. A Certified Copy of that Court Order, called a Decree Changing Name, showing your New Legal Name is like a golden ticket. With it, you can get your records changed just the way you want and right away. Without a Certified Court Order or other government issued certificate, expect trouble getting your ID and Official Records changed.

– Every state has their own process for issuing, changing and maintaining Driver’s licenses and/or State Identification Cards. Consequently, you should check to see if your state requires something else or not. Go get your Social Security Account updated first, so it will match when DMV checks it. California’s DMV electronically verifies your name, birth date and social security number with the SSA and if your information does not verify, you will not receive your new California driver license or identification card. You have to go to DMV, in person, for that. Because of all that, make sure your Social Security records are correct first.
