DocsBase provides all the services needed to change your name
Name change procedures are different depending on your situation. If you are want to change your name here in New York, you must do it through the County Court or a branch of the Civil Court of the City of New York. You will have to submit your birth certificate, background check, financial status, and the reason for requiring a name change. If your birth certificate and/or financial status (bank statement) are in a foreign language, they will have to be translated to English. We can provide a certified translation that is guaranteed to be accepted by both the County Court or the Civil Court of the City of New York.
If you were married in the United States, but are from a different country and want to change your legal name in that country, the procedure might be slightly more complex. Since every country’s requirements are different, you will have to check with that specific country on how to change your name. It is almost certain that you will need a translation of your Certificate of Marriage Registration and you will need the original to be apostilled. Some countries may require that the translation also be apostilled. If you are changing your name in a country that is not a signatory to The Hague Convention, your Certificate of Marriage Registration may require consular legalization. Not only can we translate your certificate, but we can also legalize it! We provide apostille and consular legalization services.
