When first signing documentation with the comapany using my given first name, I let them know that I was known by my nickname. Customers were confused when material arrived in my given name, so we changed to use nickname.The company (direct sales) has communicated with me and used my nick name and last name on everything for the last several years. Recently they told me that my name on all material had to match my ss card and birth certificate. Cant I use a DBA or an AKA to accomplish this without having to go to such extremes? I hold credit cards and maintain bank accounts using my nick name as my first name and my last name. All of my customers, friends aquaitences and family members have known me by this name for over 30 years plus.
I live in GA and the company is TX.
The company's rules regarding the use of names is just that - the company's rules. It is not governed by law. You would need to ask the company about the ability to use AKA or DBA instead of changing or social security card and birth certificate.
In order to change your social security card and birth certificate you would need a court order granting a change of your name.
Finally, I've changed the practice area of your question since it has absolutely nothing to do with marriage contracts.
The above answer is a general explanation of legal rights and procedures. It does not constitute legal advice. Nor does it establish an attorney-client relationship between the individual posting the question and the attorney providing the answer.
