In the US (Illinois, specifically) I changed my name legally, or so I thought. Now it appears the name change may not have happened. How can I confirm beyond a doubt whether the name change legally exists or not, and if not, what's next? [more inside]

Does my signature have to match my legal name?

Does my signature have to match my legal name? The reason I ask is because I go by my middle name, not my first. My wife insists that I sign "legal" things like car loans and tax returns with my full name, while I maintain that my typical signature is fine (and grudgingly sign her way). Which one is it?
