Hey there, dear readers of the page! I haven’t visited in a while, as evidenced by the cobwebs all over. I just haven’t felt like writing. But, I have some good news, and wanted to share!
I have finally gotten the name change process underway! It is being handled pro bono by the Legal Aid in my city. I met with my lawyer and signed off on all the paperwork. The name change request was submitted and accepted within a matter of hours. I have a court date to go in front of the judge, which terrifies me, by the way. The date is Oct 30. I’m pretty excited, but also nervous that something will turn up to prevent me from getting this essential part of my transition.
Of course, with the name change comes changing over all my documents, marriage license, drivers license, social security, bank account. All sorts of other stuff. So, it will be a busy Autumn season for me.
BTW – Thanks Egg, for driving me down scary downtown roads, and just being my champion always!
