Changing Birth Certificate Information
« on: May 08, 2014, 07:34:35 am »
The information I'm seeing implies that a court order for the change is required beyond the court order I have already obtained for my name change.  I have been unable to find anything that suggests how such an order is obtained, or whether GRS is a requirement(in several places it seems to be, GDI).  If it makes any difference, I was born in Virginia.  Can anyone shed some light on this process?

No most states have forms and instructions to diy. You could spend extra money and go the lawyer route if you wish.

New jersey is where I had mine done. Just paperwork,fees,advertising and filings.

Comes down to the court docket and when it is filed. Also how long it takes to get the listing in paper and they send certificate back.

so having a lawyer would be faster because they know what they are doing and can get the info in faster. i'll bring up the discussion with my lawyer and see what she says, other than that, i would hate to get into legal matters without some form of guidance

I'm in NJ and in the process of changing my name. (My court date is on the 21st.) I'm doing it myself. ($200) plus paper legal notice fees. Most lawyers in NJ want around $1000 (including fees) to do it. The paperwork isn't too bad (the CIS form is a little confusing since there is no defendant) and the court clerks can help you fill out the forms. After filing a week later I received a phone call from the judge's secretary to confirm a court date that was 4 weeks away and she gave me exact instructions on how to place a legal notice for the court date and the time frame. She was transgender friendly and said it was perfectly OK to dress as myself and for the notice your suppose to check his or her and she said just have the notice say his/her. After my court date and everything is OK, I publish the order in the paper again, get the affidavit from the paper (by mail), go to the courthouse and get my certified copies to bring to DMV, SS, etc. Also you send a certified copy (make sure you get several since many agencies will keep the copy) to the vital statistics of the state you were born in (TN for me) to update your birth certificate. If all goes well, I should be able to change my ID by the 1st or 2nd week in June. This is a good thing since my license expires at the end of June anyway.

From your comments, it sounds like your in NJ too, not sure. I'm dealing with Bergen County Court. Is there a more difficult county in NJ than that?
