Lawyer Needed - name change


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am a naturalized American citizen, born in Guadalajara, and my family is from el municipio de Jocotepec, which I visit often. Ten years ago I legally changed my name (through the American courts), and now I am looking to go through the process of changing it through the courts in Mexico, to get alignment of my American and Mexican identity. From what I understand I need to get a juicio to then present to my local registro civil that would then make an annotation on my birth certificate. I was speaking with Azucena Bateman (as recommended by another thread on here), and she said she would look into it for me, but she's now gone dark, so I'm wondering if there are any other recommendations for lawyers in the area. Thanks.

.That is an optiln if you do not want to go through the legal hassle to go through the court system.

When you legally change your name in the USA, they normally send you a list of all that need to be notified so other documents can be changed such as birth certificate, passport, etc., then theses documents are presented to Mexico.   Pm me and I will let you know of my procedure
