    Default Can I Change My First Name on My Birth Certificate After Legal Name Change

    I have legally changed my first name. Is it possible to change the first name listed on my birth certificate to match my new first name in the state of NY? My driver's license has my new first name. I have yet to update my social security card and passport with my new first name.

    If you are outside of NYC check the state office for proper forms and procedures:
