Changing Our Child's Nameby AF editors

Q: Do we have to use a lawyer (and pay attorney fees) to change our child’s name?
A: Go to namechangelaw.com for a packet of forms you can file yourself. Depending on your state’s law, you may have to appear in court and pay a court fee, or advertise the name change in local newspapers, but the total cost should be less than it would if you had to hire an attorney.
