Camila's Story

Camila is a single mother of two who moved to Florida from Ohio. It wasn’t until she went to get her Florida ID that she found out her last name wasn’t always Fraizer. According to her birth certificate, she was Camila Harris; however, her Social Security card said Camila Fraizer. While she had always gone by her father’s last name, this seemingly simple mistake was much more difficult to fix than Camila thought. With the names on her documents not matching, Camila could not obtain her REAL ID. Without an ID card, she could not receive rental assistance or prove that she was her children's mother to enroll them into school. With the help of IDignity’s attorneys and volunteers, Camila was able to get in front of a judge and request a legal name change. After five years of struggling and a few months working with IDignity, Camila was able to obtain her amended birth certificate, and her official name now matches her family’s and children’s names, enabling her to obtain her Florida ID, rental assistance, and access for her children to enroll in school.
