you may also need to print your name in Section 3.
You need not attach any documentation to the Form I-9 as
evidence of the name change. Many attorneys recommend against
requesting any proof of the name change for I-9 purposes,
though you may request proof of the change prior to updating
the name in your payroll and tax records.
