Q: changing second name in birth certificate

To whom it may concern,

I'd want to clear up a couple of questions, connected with a birth certificate topic.

We need to change a second name for an eight-year old child. A child has a double citizenship, from US and from Russian Federation (a birth certificate recieved in Miami, Florida).

Mother has Russian citizenship, not long ago she changed her and child’s second names in Russian documents(that’s the main reason of changing it in US birth certificate).

We need to know, is it possible to make that(and then how) and which package of documents we need to provide. Moreover, we are ready to provide all powers of attorney for all task activities.

If you’re interested, please write us approximate fee with all supposed charges.

With a great respects,

Viktoriya.

P.S. Please, contact us by e-mail v9250750875@yandex.ru
