Atlanta Name Change Project Intake Form

Find Your State

Know the laws in your state that protect LGBT people and people living with HIV.

This form is for the Name Change Project only.  If you are looking for legal representation in a discrimination matter related to sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, or HIV status, please visit­­­ https://www.lambdalegal.org/help/form.

Thank you for reaching out to Lambda Legal regarding the Atlanta Name Change Project. We assist in connecting low-income transgender people with law firms that provide them with pro bono (free) legal representation for name changes in Atlanta.

If you are a low-income transgender person in need of a name change and live in Atlanta, please fill out this form.

CONFIDENTIALITY

The information you submit via this form will be considered by Lambda Legal in matching you with a cooperating law firm. It will only be shared with cooperating law firms who we have determined may be able to assist you in changing your name. Except for providing your information to cooperating law firms, Lambda Legal will keep the information you share with us confidential.  The cooperating law firm will also keep your information confidential. 

YOU MAY ONLY FILL OUT THIS FORM YOURSELF OR ON BEHALF OF A MINOR CHILD

Lambda Legal can only accept requests for legal representation directly from the person seeking legal assistance. However, if you are the parent, guardian or "next friend" of a transgender youth, you may fill out this form on their behalf.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I SUBMIT THIS FORM?

Once you submit this form, Lambda Legal staff will review it and advise you via telephone whether we are able to match you with a cooperating law firm. At that time, we may request other information required for your representation. Lambda Legal tries to respond to all legal assistance requests on a first come, first serve basis.

Please note that it will take 2-5 business days for you to receive a response once you submit the form. Once you have received a response and an intake has been completed, there may be additional waiting time prior to the beginning of representation.

NO LEGAL REPRESENTATION BY LAMBDA LEGAL

Filling out this form does not establish a lawyer-client relationship with Lambda Legal. Lambda Legal does not take on name change clients directly, but operate the Name Change Project in partnership with private law firms and corporations in Atlanta.  If Lambda Legal determines that you are eligible for assistance by a private law firm or corporation, you will be represented by your assigned firm for your name change only.
