Name Change

[Name Change Photo] Ever since 9/11, officials are paying much more attention to any identity discrepancies and that is reflected in the increase of clients retaining the Law Office of Frank Marciano for a formal name change application in the New Jersey Courts.

Keep in mind that changing your name means more than getting used to signing a new name on a piece of paper. After you legally change your name, you may have to revise the following documents:

  • Legal records (Social Security, driver's license)
  • Financial records (bank accounts, loans, leases, credit cards)
  • Business cards
  • Health insurance
  • Passport
  • Memberships
  • Phone book listings

A person is allowed to formally change their name in New Jersey as long as they do not have a criminal record or are not trying to avoid creditors. The process of legally changing your name is necessary, especially if you don't have the same name printed on all your official documents. For example, if you need to leave the country, the name on your passport must be identical to the name on your driver's license.

"Show us your papers" is becoming a more and more common request of government officials and corporations. Let us help you put your identity records in order.

Client Reviews
I initially chose Frank because of how close his office is to the municipal court. Best decision ever. His staff was on top of the matter and he literally knew everyone at the courthouse. He was able to get my charge dropped to a lower penalty and is currently working on my expungement. Definitely recommended. R.L.
I hired Frank for help in purchasing a multi-family home. To make a long story short, Frank advised me against the initial property I had come to see him about and it was the best decision I could have ever made. He went out of his way to make sure I was making a wise /secure investment and saved me a great deal of money and grief, when he could have just went through with the initial deal. I would hire him again without a doubt. B.W.
Frank Marciano is a master of the law. He thinks outside the box and finds the best way to go about any issues that arise. His professional staff was great at touching base about my case and I felt at ease throughout the entire process. D.L.
I am very satisfied with everything about this law firm. From the friendly staff to attorney Frank Marciano, everyone was sharp. All my questions were answered and all my issues were addressed. I have complete confidence in Frank Marciano and highly recommend him. W.C.
