Do you have any hispanic lawyers with a paternal and maternal

Esta respuesta ha recibido una valoración:

Do you have any hispanic lawyers with a paternal and maternal surname in their certificate of birth?
Hello. I am not sure I understand your question. What could you like to know about that type of situation?
Cliente: escribió hace 5 años.
Are maternal surnames material in the USA for a determination of a legal name? If you have a maternal and paternal surname in your certificate of birth, not hyphenated and you omit the maternal surname from a signature.
What are the liabilities? Everybody has a different opinion and I would like to know the opinion of an hispanic lawyer with 2 surnames in his certificate of birth.
Well, it doesn't really matter that the Hispanic lawyer have two last names in their birth certificate. In fact, the lawyer doesn't even have to be Hispanic. If you want anecdotal evidence, sure, but if you want the law on the matter, any lawyer will do. What is it that you are worried about?

Some people say the omission of a maternal surname from a signature is material and some say it isn't. What's the law? Can a police officer write me up for omitting my maternal surname while conducting daily business? If it is, it's open season on all of us hispanics.
The law is actually very simple. If someone were to point at a document and say, "Is that your signature", would you be able to say yes or no? Signatures can be anything. Since I sign many papers, my signature has become mainly my initials. So you wouldn't be able to tell my last name or any name at all. But if someone asks, "is that your signature", I would have to say yes. If I said no, they could bring in a handwriting expert to look over many other documents that I have signed and tell if I am lying or not. So no, a police officer cannot write you up for ommitting one of your last names. But if you are trying to forge a signature or trying to pass yourself off as someone that you are not, then that is fraud of another matter, not really having to do with your signature, per se. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you without additional charge. If there is a delay in getting back to you it is either because I am answering other questions or I had to log off, but I will be back with you as soon as possible. It is VERY important that if you are not satisfied, please ask additional questions. My goal is to provide you with top-notch service. And please don't forget to rate me, but please rate me on my service to you, not the state of the law because I have no control over that. Also, a bonus is always appreciated.

So using my first name, middle name and paternal surname only is still considered a legal name even though i have a maternal surname i don't usually use?
Yes. But you should use the same name for everything that you do. Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. Thank you.

What is the definition of a legal name according to the Puerto Rico civil code? Does it include middle names?

I looked that up in the civil code, but it really doesn't say much. What is the issue you are having? Is it an adoption issue? Inheritance issue?
