I would like to add a middle name to my son's name. How do I go about doing that? Does it require name change on birth certificate and social security card?

Dear pkrishnam-ga; Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question. Under Georgia law a name change is any change that is made to the name as it was originally recorded on the birth certificate. By adding or changing the middle name of the child you are effectively altering the entire name. In order to do this legally one must petition the court. Fortunately there is not much to this process. The name change laws for Georgia are governed by 19-12-1 of the Georgia Code: GEORGIA GENERAL ASSEMBLY 19-12-1 http://www.legis.state.ga.us/cgi-bin/gl_codes_detail.pl?code=19-12-1 Upon legally changing the name of the minor child you (on behalf of the child) will receive a name change certificate issued by the state as proof of the change (Georgia Code 19-12-3. Certificate of change of name; use as evidence): GEORGIA GENERAL ASSEMBLY 19-12-3 http://www.legis.state.ga.us/cgi-bin/gl_codes_detail.pl?code=19-12-3 There are some online resources that can assist you in obtaining this name change for a fee. I cannot vouch for their legitimacy however and recommend you speak with a lawyer before agreeing to any contracts with any of these agencies.

Howdy pkrishnam-ga, To hopefully add to Tutuzdad-ga's answer, here is where to find the information on how to make the changes to your son's Social Security card. To avoid future problems that your son might have, I would think it would be prudent to do this change with the Social Security department. Please note that his Social Security number will not change and there is no charge for the name change on this document. http://www.ssa.gov/replace_sscard.html "If you need to replace a lost Social Security card, change the name shown on your card, or request a replacement card, you will need to complete an application to receive a Social Security card." Looking Forward, denco-ga - Google Answers Researcher
