Shortened Name on Legal Documents

For some documents, the signature must be a legible version of the full name – very difficult if you have spent your life with a doodle. I knew a guy in high school named Z Smith. No kidding. Z! (No period after the Z either.) In fact, he was the president of our class. Great guy too: smart, funny, cool. Years later, I saw an article he was writing – I think he was working for alexa.com at the time. And Dog will help you if for some reason you decide to change the way you sign your name. There are legitimate reasons for this (for example, the amputation of an index finger). You may be afraid to change your name from the one your parents gave you, but you`re really only doing it legally.

Also, it won`t just make for an interesting conversation, think about all the jokes that are legal, your name is what people usually call you. There is no official register of names – such a thing would be impossible anyway. The only way to prove that your name is what you say is to show proof that other people are calling you by that name. The best proof is the official documents, su Oh, and get that. My girlfriend immigrated here from Israel. She doesn`t have a middle name. She is of Russian origin. What does INTO say about her? “You MUST have a middle name. All Russians have a middle name. Wow, I`m glad they know so much about Russian culture, but unfortunately, they`re damn wrong.

So she invented one on the spot: she used her nickname (the name she actually has) as a middle name. She is now called “Raisa Raya”. What a delay. I have encountered all sorts of problems with the short and long versions of my name on the documents, not the least of which is the credit report. Now I always sign the full name with the middle initial on the documents and leave the abbreviated version in the conversation. Most of the comments here seem to assume that everyone has their “real”, “legal” name and may also have other names that people call them. Legally, it is a little more complex, or at least more fluid. My first pay stub I get misspelled my last name (no supervisor, I didn`t misspell my own name on the forms you gave me. I`m not typing legal abbreviations that weren`t found online, try searching for one of the print sources below. These publications are available regularly in legal and other libraries. In legal documents, it is common to cite other publications using standard abbreviations for the title of each source.

Abbreviations can also be found for common words or legal phrases. These quotes and abbreviations can be found in court decisions, laws, regulations, journal articles, books and other documents. Below is a basic list of very common abbreviations. Since publishers have different practices regarding printing abbreviations, abbreviations can be found with or without dots for each letter. For example, the Code of Federal Regulations may be abbreviated to “C.F.R.” or simply “CFR.” As for the article, my parents told me early on and raised that my official name should always be the same. If I used my middle initial, I had to use it everywhere. I used my middle initial and recorded my middle name for verification purposes. The doctrine of “confiscation by agreement” means that if you sign a contract under any name and then claim to be bound by the treaty, you cannot squirm on the grounds that the name is not really yours. See also “View” above. “vs.” is used in most scholarly writings in other fields, but “v.” is used in legal writing only. This may be a slightly more extreme example, but a friend of mine tried to transfer her driver`s license from Texas to New York.

He had his name like this: F. Middle Last on some of his business (like the Social Security card and Texas license) and First Mr. Last on other things from her. She was there for hours, but they didn`t want to believe she was who she claimed to be, even though everything else obviously went well. In fact, she must have done something ridiculous, like getting a signed and stamped copy of her Texas birth certificate, I don`t remember exactly what. Name errors can be corrected as part of the general contract interpretation process called “correction”. This is more common when it comes to company names, for example, when there are half a dozen companies closely related to related names, and the question is which of them should be mentioned; There are a few recent cases of this kind, such as Liberty Mercian Ltd v Cuddy Civil Engineering Ltd [2013] EWHC 2688 (TCC). In general, as Lord Denning said in Nittan v Solent Steel [1980] EWCA Civ J1023-4, this is strange, but for some reason different credit bureaus seem to put different names on reports depending on which “version” of your name you use to request a report. I invested about 3 years to fix everything and I`m at about 80% of it. Another big question: Do I use my middle initial when ordering things online with a credit card? The form states: “Must match the name on the card.” Well, the name on the card is “Joe M Smith.” WITHOUT the period after the middle initial. So, should I say “Joe M Smith” or “Joe M.

Blacksmith”? As for me, who cares about FUCK? Lol Legally, have your name changed to something that requires Unicode. Much more fun and long-term also better for society. In Scots law, which contains some lessons from Roman civil law, a distinction is made between an error of persona and an error of nomine. The first means that you were wrong about who your counterpart really was (so you wouldn`t have contracted if you had known the truth), and the second means you had the person you were targeting but made a mistake about their name. The law of error in Scotland is not quite the same as in England and Wales, but in this case it leads to the same basic result: once you have agreed on who should be linked, it counts, regardless of the names used.
