Tahlequah, OK asked in Business Formation and Business Law for Oklahoma

Q: I want to change my name virtually mostly for biz purposes. Can I do a DBA as a person?

I want to change my name but avoid expense & hassle. I live virtually so I want to do it virtually. I've been going by an assumed name on social media. Then I came up with a biz name for the assumed name. I just did a DBA in my legal name for the biz name that matches my assumed name. Can I do another one in my legal name for the assumed name?

A: There are some specifics for name changes however there is some looseness to these that can sometimes be worked around. However that may not be your best solution but you should contact an attorney and let the review all your specifics to advise you the best course of action.
