Name Change in Summerville, SC
In South Carolina, there are two separate processes for changing your name. If you are changing your name at the time of your divorce it is incredibly simple and will be done when your divorce is finalized.
If you would like to change your name and it is not at the time of a divorce you will need to contact an attorney to help you though that process.
You will need:
Your long form birth certificate
South Carolina Law Enforcement Division Criminal Record and Fingerprints
South Carolina Law Enforcement Division Sex Offender Registry Confirmation
South Carolina Department of Social Services Child Abuse Registry Confirmation
An Affidavit if you are under a court order to pay child support or alimony
Must have a hearing before a Family Court Judge
