Each state is different when it comes to Adult Name Changes. Most states post a simple form on the web if you search for the information using a query like "Adult Name Change California".
This form asks very basic questions. No, you are not a "United States Citizen" --- you are an "Other", if the form for your state asks, and that means you are a Hawaiian, Texan, Floridian, Wisconsinite, etc. in case anyone asks.
The most important question is--- your reason for the name change?
Reply that you wish to adopt the proper English Grammar and your correct Christian appellation.
Nobody can argue with that, especially since the all UPPER CASE style is a "Glossa" and known to be a corruption of Latin that reduces to gibberish and is in a sign language incompatible with English.
You fill out the form, you pay a fee from between $50 and $150, using a Money Order made out to the proper court, and you wait while the court gives public notice. Then you attend a Hearing in person. This takes all of about two minutes. The Judge asks if you are doing this to avoid debt or engage in any illegal purpose. You aren't, so you answer--- no. You wait again, for a final public notice period. The court issues a decree officially changing your name back to the Upper and Lower Case form.
In most states you get a certified copy of the actual Court Order. This will have wet-ink signatures and a blue wet-ink stamp on it. If you don't receive this in the mail, you will have to go to the Court Clerk and request (and pay for) a certified copy of the Court Order.
Now, you have been made an offer of a new name by the court, and you are going to accept it.
You are going to draft a very simple "Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-conveyance Without Consideration". You are going to attach this document on top of the certified copy of the court order decreeing the name change----and you are going to record this package with the local Land Recording Office as a Miscellaneous Land Deed.
Here is an example of what this document needs to say:
"On this 18th day of July in the year 2016 I have received and do accept my own Trade Name doing business as Anna Maria Riezinger and do re-convey it to Lawful Jurisdiction and its native domicile on the soil and the land of the wisconsin state and do place this Deed upon the Alaska State Court of Record, Third Postal District, in token of my action."
In the example, the 18th of July was the first full effective day of the name change decree--that is, the day AFTER the day set by the court as the "effective date" of the change, which was July 17, 2016. Doing it the day after means that there is no possible question of whether the decree was in effect or not.
Stipulating that the Name received is your own Trade Name prevents any further shimmy-shally claim that it is a Foreign Situs Trust or other incorporated franchise name.
Re-conveying to "Lawful Jurisdiction" spells out that you are operating under the actual Constitution and Common Law and placing the Name back in its "native domicile on the soil and land" makes it absolutely clear that it is not naturally subject to international jurisdiction. "Soil" is the actual "dust" from which we are formed and "land" is the mixture of "soil and water" standing upright which our bodies are.
Please note that it is the "soil and land" of the "wisconsin state"---I was born and raised in Wisconsin, so whatever soil and water made me came from wisconsin, the actual, factual organic state. Use the name of your birth state written in all small letters to express this fact: nevada, north carolina, florida, texas, etc.
Please note that the Deed is being placed on the "Alaska State Court of Record" ---- not any "State of Alaska Court"---because I am now living in Alaska and filing a Land Asset Deed through the Alaska Recorder's Office. It goes in the Miscellaneous file, because there are no metes and bounds or other geographic description of "Anna Maria Riezinger"--- even though I am made of "land" and am considered a land asset.
Thanks to chicanery that went on after the Civil War, the land jurisdiction "State" was separated from the sea jurisdiction "State", and the difference was designated by referring to either the "Florida State" (land) or the "State of Florida" (sea) for example. In the same way the courts are all separated:
The Alaska State Superior Court operates on the land jurisdiction, whereas the "State of Alaska" Courts operate in one of two other capacities----either as (1) private, in-house corporate tribunals of the local "State of" franchise, or (2) as maritime/admiralty courts in the international jurisdiction of the sea.
The same applies at the "district" level---- the United States District Court, Third Postal District is a land court, but the United States District Court, Third Judicial District is a sea court.
As you are land and belong to the land all actions regarding your Trade Name must be addressed to the land jurisdiction State, land jurisdiction Court of Record, land jurisdiction district, etc. using the name conventions like this: Iowa State, Iowa State Court, Iowa State Assembly, Iowa State......and any action you bring before a district court must be brought in the "Postal District" not the "Judicial District".
Okay, so now that you know all the background behind this simple little "Deed", you take it to the Land Recording Office and record it. If you live in a state where the Recorder's Office also collects taxes, you ask them to apply the $9 RHSP stamp to your deed, and you place a $1 Global Postage Stamp on the face of the Deed to be recorded.
This fulfills a $10 "stamp tax" that was imposed in 1802 for the cost of "reconveying" an asset from the sea jurisdiction to the land jurisdiction.
If you live in a state where the Recorder's Office is separate from the tax collection agency, you will have to take a certified copy of your recorded "Deed" to the taxing agency and have them apply the RHSP stamp, put the $1 Global Postage Stamp on the face of your certified copy, and then re-record this completed "stamped and certified" Deed back through the Recorder's Office again.
These Rotters don't make it easy. They only charge $9 for the stamp leaving you a "dollar short and a day late"----unless you give them the additional "good and equitable service" of the postage stamp applied to the front of the document.
No matter what, you now have all the information you need to dance through their maze and get to your goal--- a "Deed" to your own Trade Name properly stamped and paid for, recorded, and if necessary, re-recorded.
Finally, you are ready to serve Notice on the Court of your return action. For this you draft up another simple little form of your own making.
In the upper right hand corner in small print you write your name and mailing address and telephone number. You title this document the same way the name change decree is titled--- for example, "IN THE SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE STATE OF IDAHO AT BOISE".
You identify your Upper and Lower Case Name as the "Plaintiff" and the all UPPER CASE NAME as the "Defendant" and you reference the Case Number of the Name Change action.
Then write another title, such as "Notice of Deed", and a brief statement to the effect and for example: "I, Elizabeth Ann Crowley, hereby give notice of my acknowledgement and acceptance and re-conveyance of my Trade Name Elizabeth Ann Crowley to the land jurisdiction of the idaho state. I am attaching a certified copy of the recorded Deed to be annexed to the court file. Notice to agents is notice to principals, notice to principals is notice to agents."
Sign it and date it and certify it ---- meaning, at the bottom of the page write:
"I certify that on ______________a true, complete, and correct copy of this Notice and supporting documents attached was hand-delivered to the Clerk of the above named COURT." ---and sign and date that again.
Make two copies of this Notice of Deed, one attached to the certified copy of the recorded Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-Conveyance Without Consideration, and one in your hand to be date stamped as received by the Clerk of the COURT for your records.
If you are as paranoid as I am, you may want to trot right on over to the Recorder's Office and have your date-stamped Notice of Deed recorded and annexed to the already recorded Deed of Acknowledgement, Acceptance, and Re-Conveyance.
Congratulations! You are back where you started, standing on Terra Firma as an American State National in control of your Trade Name and with the bit between your teeth! You will still have to take additional steps to regain control of the ALL CAPS "person", but that is coming soon.
