It is possible but if you are underage, it is not possible without a legal guardian's consent!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

If you're over 18, you can go to the county court office and file a petition for a name change!. If you're under 18, you must have your legal guardian be the petitioner for you!. The process usually takes couple months and a couple hundred dollars!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Yes, that's easy to do!. You can get a kit with everything you need to legally change your name at - http://www!.legalformsbank!.biz/namechange!.!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
