Name Changes

Postby brdrider-p40 » Mon Oct 19, 2009 10:58 am

What legal documentation, if any, is needed to change a name on a membership record? For example, if a member was recently divorced and is reverting back to their maiden name.

A current driver's license would suffice, or any documentation from the court finalizing the divorce.

I would think something like adoption papers or other similar court documents would suffice.

I have a situation right now where the member's legal name was not properly entered into the MLS record (she has a hyphenated name and part of it was omitted on record entry years ago). Do I still need to get a legal document to change it or simply make the change (if so, do I copy the document and keep it somewhere)?

Either way, what category do I assign it to when MLS asks for the reason the name is being changed?

Thanks.

There is a category for correcting a full name that is currently misspelled. I would use that one.
Many questions are already answered on the LDSTech wiki. Check it out!

Thanks I'll try it that way.
