By now, it should be pretty obvious that a name change is a pretty big deal.
When it comes to legal changes, the process can be complicated, time-consuming, and even intimidating.
It’s also not something most people do unless they really, really need to.
But the FBI’s recent announcement that it would change its name to the National Crime Information Center was something that many of us just had to know about.
Here are the legal issues involved with changing your name.1.
Changing your name does not change your legal status or criminal recordIn the US, the name of the FBI is a “person” under the US Constitution.
In theory, changing your legal name does, however, affect the status of your legal case.
To clarify, if you change your names legally, your status is still the same as before, and you still have your legal documents, like a passport, which will show you who you are.
Changing the name does nothing to change the fact that you are an FBI agent or a federal agent.2.
Changing a name does NOT change your status, your criminal record, or your civil rightsIn some states, such as California, changing the name doesn’t mean you’re guilty of a crime.
Rather, changing a name doesn.
This means that if you’re in jail, you still need to be arrested if you are convicted of a criminal offense.
However, if the court orders that you be released, the court may require you to register as a fugitive if you aren’t going to be deported.
This could be a problem if you have a felony record and a fugitive status.3.
Changing names does NOT automatically make you a fugitiveIf you’re a fugitive, you may not be able to get back to your home state and apply for a passport.
You could be in danger if you try to re-enter your home country.
In addition, changing an FBI name will not automatically make it so that you will be eligible for the same kinds of protections that other federal law enforcement agents get.
If you are in a foreign country, it is possible that your name could change or that you may be prosecuted under a different law, such that the FBI will be able arrest you even if you don’t have a criminal record.
Changing your name also does not automatically put you on a list of fugitives.
In some states (and the US) changing your last name does automatically make that person a fugitive.
But if you already have a fugitive designation, you don.4.
Changing legal names is illegalIf you have an existing legal name, changing it to a new one will make you ineligible for federal financial aid or federal jobs.
However you can change your old name, the Federal Government has a policy that applies to all new names.
Changing one name will make it more difficult for the government to know where to find you.5.
Changing an FBI alias does NOT mean you are not an FBI informantIf you are a federal informant, you can be held in jail indefinitely for using an alias.
It can be quite hard to know if you’ve been arrested, or even if your name has been changed.
For this reason, you’ll want to know what information you are legally required to disclose, such the name, location, and date of birth of the person you are using as an alias, and if you will ever be allowed to use the name again.
The US Department of Justice has a website that provides tips on how to protect yourself from these kinds of legal troubles.6.
Changing old names can be very expensive and complicatedIf you choose to change an alias or a previous name, you need to do it at your own expense.
You will need to find a new name, which is expensive, and then get a court order to change it.
The court order can cost anywhere from thousands of dollars to thousands of times the cost of changing your old legal name.
The courts will typically only allow you to use a new alias once.
For example, if your previous name was Sam, but you wanted to change to Joe, you’d have to change Sam to Joe for three years.
If the court decides that you’re no longer a legitimate alias holder, you could lose your federal job and your civil asset.7.
Changing criminal records does not mean you can’t be held criminally accountable for crimes you committedYou may be able change your criminal history without being prosecuted if the person changing your criminal records can provide evidence that you did commit a crime, or can establish that you have committed a crime in the past and were able to identify the person who committed it.
For instance, a person can claim that they were caught red-handed and that the person they arrested knew that they did it, and that person was able to provide some proof that you committed the crime.
For an FBI criminal history, you will need proof of your past crime and some proof of that person’s guilt.8.
