My question involves name change laws in the State of: NY
The name on my birth certificate is not the name I have used for all my legal documents (passport, licenses, SS #, etc).
I have never used my birth certificate name my entire life. My parents never called me by that name.
I am now in the process of applying for dual citizenship and I'm having a hard time getting a copy of my birth certificate because all of my identifying papers have a different name.
Is it possible to change the name on my birth certificate? How?
