WASHINGTON OFFICIALS & Commissioner Valerie Jolicouer: Allow Billy Fisher to change the name of his Daughter

After asking for help from CPS to remove his infant daughter from an unsafe situation, Billy Fisher is currently fighting for custody of his baby girl, whose legal name is Jerah Mia Martin.
The name "Jerah Mia Martin" was given to Billy's daughter by her mother, during her association to a man by this name who had sexually abused Sabrina since she was young teenager.
Billy's daughter is currently developing her identity. At this time, she is called "Jerah Mia Martin" - the name of her mother's sexual abuser - by the courts, foster parents and siblings, DSHS employees, and Mediation/Visitation Employees.
Billy and his family, friends, and supporters world wide, all refer to his daughter by the name that her parents had originally intended for her, Lila-Ann Fisher, or Lilly for short. Lila is the name of Billy's grandmother, Ann is the name of his exwife's grandmother.
Billy feels it would be detrimental for his daughter's continued development of identity if the foster parents and siblings, DSHS employees, and Mediation/Visitation employees continue to call her "Jerah" for the duration of the Dependency Proceedings, especially since her current name refers to her mother's long time sexual abuser.
DSHS say that same things as Billy, that the baby is establishing her identity, and has started to respond to the name Jerah. DSHS and the courts insist that not only her name stay Jerah for the proceedings, but that Billy calls her by that twisted name as well.

Billy is being kept from his daughter soley for his medical cannabis use, and fully expects, with Washington Law on his side, to be untied with his daughter very soon. Please sign the petition and urge Wasington Officials to tell the judge of the family court to, at the very least, allow Billy to change his daughter's name from that of an abuser to her intended name. Lila Ann Fisher.
