Name Changes In South Carolina

Names can be one of the most distinct methods of identification we are given. If you do not like your name — for whatever reason — it can be frustrating. I understand that a name defines an individual and how important it is for children to fit in. I handle name changes for minors as a result of adoptions or otherwise as well. At The Carver Law Firm, L.L.C., in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I can help you change your name, regardless of your age.

With over 18 years of legal experience, I understand the importance of intentionally creating or defining your existence through the legal system. Contact me, attorney Lisa M. Carver, or call 843-502-0368 to schedule an appointment to discuss how to change your name.

Restrictions On Name Changes

There are few restrictions on changing your name. However, you will be restricted from changing your name for any of the following reasons:

  • To defraud creditors
  • If you are currently in bankruptcy
  • To avoid registration as a sex offender or as a child abuser
  • To hide illegal activities or if you have pending criminal charges
  • If you have ever been denied a passport or are on any terrorist watchlists

Name changes are typically a fast legal process. When you work with my firm, The Carver Law Firm, L.L.C., any delay in the process comes from waiting for court time, not waiting for us to file your paperwork.

Whether you are named after someone you do not like, wish to sever associations with another family member or have always gone by another name, we can help change your name to accomplish your goals.
