Not covered:
This workshop does not assist with confidential name changes and is only equipped to assist those changing their legal name to conform to their gender identity. Adults seeking a name change for reasons OTHER than to conform to their gender identity will be referred to the monthly adult name change workshop held on the third Friday of every month at LA Law Library.
