Honoring a Father Figure: The Power of a Name Change
Having never met his biological father, our client came to us seeking a name change to honor the grandfather who raised him and filled the fatherly role in his life. The process was fairly straightforward though a bit overwhelming due to the many steps involved. Moreover, any mistake or failure would give rise to a risk of having the entire case dismissed. With our assistance, within the year, the name change was granted, and he was able to officially adopt his grandfather’s last name. This afforded our client a sense of closure and connection.
