The name change process in New York is an important tool for transgender and non-binary people, but it also presents challenges. A panel of experts in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer rights will review the importance of legal name changes, the history of the law, and the nuts and bolts of the name change process, with practical advice for a successful outcome. The panelists will also discuss how to work with transgender clients, how to change other identity documents, and considerations regarding criminal and immigration issues.
