Q: Hello, my legal person name is Asher. I am a paralegal myself, withholding 34 years of experience. I have a question
A man who was previously convicted in his first and last name in a state other than where he resided, had an established residency the state of California where his married spousal successfully changed his name to something other than what he was convicted as then triumphed himself out of the entire system.
How did he do it? I am puzzled.
MUCH MORE INFO NEEDED.
IT'S LIKE ASKING A DOC WHY DO I HAVE CANCER?
It's possible the name change resulted in a mix-up in state databases. This might be something that attorneys who deal with legal name change procedures might have insight into. Although posted under Admiralty/Maritime, the average maritime practitioner who deals with cruise ship accidents, boating accidents, Jones Act cases, and similar matters is not likely to be familiar with the legal mechanisms that might have been involved in this setting. Good luck
