I covered some frequently asked questions about changing identity. Understanding about the whole context will make our goal of changing identity smooth and successful.
Q: How long does it take to create a new identity?
A: It depends on where you live. Offices in some areas are much faster than in other areas. Most people can complete the process in two to four weeks.
Q: Is identity changing legal?
A: There is nothing illegal about changing your identity or name provided you intend to use your new identity in legal ways.
Q: Is it impossible to change my name and social security number?
A: The answer is no. It is possible and legal to change your name and SSN. A name change is completely legal and very common. The procedure for changing your name varies by state, so you need to check with your county court or on the Internet to find out the exact steps you need to follow.You need to fill out a petition requesting the change. This form includes the reason that you want to change your name. The fees varies also. After you pay, you’re issued an official document that you’ll need to get your name changed everywhere else — bank, driver’s license, credit cards, insurance and Social Security Administration. Changing your SSN is also legal. You can get the social security administration to issue you a brand new card with a new number but the application process will take some time. Done correctly, everything will go smoothly.
Q: I’ve seen advertisements that sell fake IDs like birth certificates and even drivers licenses. Are these reliable?
A: No, they’re just scams and of no use whatever in establishing a new identity. You should understand that changing identity itself is already a risk, so starting it with faked documents will only make the situation worse. Many years back you could purchase all sorts of really high-quality fakes (including blank Social Security cards) but recently, since the laws are continually changing they have made it all but impossible to legally sell anything that even remotely looks like a genuine document. A new identity based entirely on a faked birth certificate and other documents are extremely limited value from a new identity viewpoint. To get a new social security number issued, you’ll need a genuine, officially-issued birth certificate which can be verified by the issuing authorities. For that reason faked documents alone just aren’t good enough. Don’t waste your money. DO it in a legal and safe way.
Q: How much will it cost me to create a new identity?
A: The only costs you’ll have will be the fees various government agencies charge which are not heavy to our pockets. These fees vary widely from state to state so it’s impossible to accurately predict them.
Q: If i do a name change in court, can i change my identity successfully?
A: The answer to your question depends on where you perform the legal name change. In some areas the court’s record of a name change is entered into a state-wide searchable computer database. This makes it extremely easy for anyone to search the database and discover the link between your old and new identities.
However, in other areas the transaction is recorded only in the local courthouse records in a paper ledger which makes it all but impossible for anyone to learn the facts unless they know exactly when and where you performed the legal name change.
