ESSEX COUNTY - NAME CHANGE

Consultation, and possible representation through name change application

LJ is a domestic violence victim of her first husband, with whom she has two children. She was awarded sole custody of those children as a result of the domestic violence, and has since remarried and expanded her family. She has learned that her ex-husband is currently incarcerated for crimes involving sex with a minor and is concerned for the safety and welfare of her children once he is released. Her current husband is the only real father her first two children have known, and she is seeking to change their last name for their well-being.
