Adult Name Change Procedure

Adult Name Change – Basic Procedure

Did you ever want to change your name back to your maiden name after a divorce, or wanted to take your husband's last name but never got to it?

You can rests assure that this is a common and easy process that can be commenced within 30-60 days.

Adult name change can be filed with your county courthouse. The petitioner (person filing for a name change) has to file all name change petitions with the Clerk and follow all procedures. In most states, adult and minor name changes have to be published in the local newspaper for 3-4 consecutive weeks, once a week.

Once the name change petition is published, the proof of publication needs to be filed at the court. Once filed you will be assigned a court date to appear in front of the judge (depending on the county and state). As long as you are not changing your name for fraudulent reasons, you name will be approved by the judge, and you will be given a name change decree with your new name. This document needs to be sent to DMV, credit card agencies, social security office, vital records for your birth certificate, etc.
