Your Legal Name and Your Name on your ID

We frequently have name problems with people, and we frequently have ID problems with seniors. Don’t let this relatively simple issue become a major problem or inconvenience for you or your family.

I have had people tell me that the name or spelling on their driver license is incorrect, and that I don’t need to worry about it. Really? Not true. If we’re creating legal documents, we need to have your legal name. We can include an “aka,” or “also known as,” but we need to have your legal name.
