Finally, after 8 months and 3 separate court hearings my name is now legally Kali Sky!
Yesterday was my third and final court hearing and for a second I thought it wasn't going to happen. When the commissioner called me up to hear my case she got kind of snarky because I didn't file the publication affidavit with the clerk. I didn't know it was suppose to be filed with the clerk and I didn't do it the first time either; it was never mentioned that I had to do that not even through all my research. I got my affidavit on a Friday and my hearing was that following Monday. The superior court is closed on the weekend so there was no time to file it with the clerk ahead of time anyways. I was one of the last cases the commissioner heard and almost everyone who had gone up before me had no idea what they were doing. They were clueless as to which documents they were suppose to have and when the commissioner gave her verdict they had no idea what the words she was saying meant. So she was probably kind of annoyed when she got to me.
Since I didn't file the publication affidavit ahead of time it's going to take the clerk 1-2 days to file it and then i will go pick up the certified court order. If i had filed it a head of time then I would have gotten that court order yesterday. Oh well. Once i get the court order I can start all the paperwork for changing my name on my social security card, birth certificate, license, bank account, insurance, and bills.
I am so glad this process is finally over!
