  • Name Change Kentucky

    Kentucky is truely upsetting me. I'm trying to amend my birth certificate. My first name is misspelled. They are telling me that I have to legally change my name through the courts just to change the spelling??? This cannot be right. Does anyone know the law here? I know in other states that if it's the same name and sounds the same when spoken, they can amend it.
    Please help

    They are correct. An amendment can be made within a short time after a child's birth, but anytime after that it will require a full name change petition.
