Our names not only provide us with a form of identification, they also serve a symbol of pride and history. It’s not uncommon for the subject of a name change to come into play in a divorce or paternity action as circumstances have changed. To ensure that your request is filed properly and is not opposed, it is in your best interest to enlist the assistance of a family law attorney.
At Fair Cadora, our attorneys can assist you in the process of changing either your name or the name of your child. With over two decades of experience, our firm has provided a positive outcome on hundreds of family law cases. We work diligently to provide you with the personalized care and attention that you deserve.
We can also provide assistance in the following areas:

Law Enforcement & Name Changes
Most name changes are approved by the court as long as there are no objections filed, the court does not find you are changing your name to commit fraud, and the name change is not designed to elude law enforcement and illegal activity. In the event that an objection is filed, you need to speak with a legal representative immediately to be sure that your identity is not connected to a crime. If you recently attempted to get your name changed and were unsuccessful, or if you are currently considering a name change for yourself or your children, contact our firm and let our experienced lawyers address your legal needs.
