Can other parts of name be changed when changing due to marriage?

Hartsville, SC |

Name has to be changed due to marriage and would like to drop first due to currently being known by middle name. Would like middle name to become first, maiden name as middle and last to be new name by marriage.

  2. Yes. You can have the right to use whatever name you wish. You can change your name at any time. But it's easier when done during a divorce.
