Step Three – We will finalize the name change process by obtaining a final order from the assigned judge either by filing a motion with the court or having a hearing before the judge.  We will then assist you in obtaining all the certified copies of the final order that you need in order to have your legal name changed with the social security administration, Georgia Department of Driver Services, etc.
