Is it possible to change your name while living in a different state? (PA)

(1/3) > >>

sorry if this is the wrong forum, but idk where else to look or ask

I was born in/currently live in Pennsylvania. After quitting my job I've decided within the next couple of months I'm moving west to vegas with a sister and start anew (more opportunities there, done with living in such a small town and dealing with small town life, plus my sister hasn't seen me in 12 years, started hrt in 2014 so im sure I'll look way different to her lol). I can't wait because my sister and I are on somewhat of a time frame with me moving over there (getting living arrangements settled, and dealing with her family as well). And I believe in PA it would take months to complete the process. So I didn't want to start the process, find out it would take months, and push back me moving.

What I want to know is, is it possible for me to change my name while living in vegas. I've been lurking and I saw someone said they could hire a lawyer to represent them (but idk what state it was and it was also 7 years ago).

I'm not sure what options I have, because PA doesn't have much info on it other than how to do it in person.

Whatever info you guys have is appreciated thank you.

If you are a registered resident of a state, it would be the state you change your name in!
