Adult Name Change

South Carolina Adult Name Change

As an adult, you may want to change your name for a variety of reasons.  We will help you through the name change process as little or as much as you would like.  

Changing your name in South Carolina requires several steps. You must be fingerprinted, undergo a SLED background check, receive a statement from Social Services indicating whether you are on the department’s Central Registry of Child Abuse and Neglect, submit an affidavit stating whether you are required to pay child support or alimony, and file a name change petition with the court.  The court may require a hearing in which you will need to attend.

If live anywhere in South Carolina and are ready to start the process to change your name, contact us today and we will guide you in the right direction.

Schedule Your Complimentary Phone Consultation

If you are ready to move forward with your divorce or child custody legal matter, call us or complete the form below to schedule your complimentary 15 minute phone consultation During the phone call, you’ll give Lila a brief overview of your family and your goals.  From there, we’ll decide if we believe we can work well together and whether we are the right family law firm for you.  You will not receive legal advice because we will not know enough information about your situation.  

Schedule Your Discovery Meeting

Your discovery meeting follows your phone call if we both decide to move forward. The discovery meeting will last one hour, but if you need a bit longer to explain your situation, that’s okay, too.  During the meeting, you and Lila will dive deeper into your situation and your goals.  Lila will explain what you can expect to happen next. You will receive valuable information whether you hire us or not. Your discovery meeting costs $79 and can take place in our Beaufort, SC office or virtually.
