Are you asking if a name change request can be done without an attorney? If so, yes it can be done. It is not a simple process but it is not too complex either. However, quite frankly based on the content and wording of your question your best bet would likely be to call around in your local area and find an attorney willing to do it for an affordable flat rate fee. Best of luck!
