Hi. This is the McUlta name change and common law website.
If you are reading this message, then you do not have frames enabled on your browser.
This site is meant to explain the details of common law, explain the legitimacy of common law name changes, and how to file to suit to obtain such rights if they are withheld from you. There are not many contemporary texts on these topics and after an exhaustive amount of research, as much of this information as possible is posted here for the benefit of anyone interested.
The common law itself has fallen out of use among many people, especially in the United States. In some states people have a clear knowledge of it and in others there is virtually no knowledge of it even among some of the most experienced in the law. The research found herein was predominately done in California, so there are a lot references to common law in that state, but as it is based in the U.S. Constitution, it does apply to any state you are in (even Louisiana!).
Hopefully after reading through this site, you will have a clear understanding of the common law, how you can use it yourself to resolve your own disputes, and especially how to apply it to legally change your name — without a court order. At common law, your word is the order.
Nothing on this site is meant to be taken as legal advice, but simply information that you may find helpful and useful, especially if you domicle in the United States.
Also, everything on this site is anti-copyrighted and in the public domain, unless specifically stated.
