Long Island Name Change Clinic
Come to The Center at Garden City on March 20, 2012 at 6:30 pm for a Name Change Clinic provided by Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund and The Center's Long Island Trans Experience.
For many transgender people, a legal name change is an important step in conforming their legal identities to how they live their lives. Often times, this can be a challenging or difficult process, involving a legal system that is new and foreign to most people. This free event ensures that transgender people have proper legal representation and knowledge along the way so that they can successfully move forward with their lives.
Participants will receive assistance filling out the forms needed for a legal name change, as well as detailed instructions on how to file the forms with the court. Depending on availability and need, participants may also be matched with an attorney who can help with the filing process.
No appointment is necessary to take part in this free and educational event.
