Name changes are most commonly done when a spouse restores their prior, or maiden, name as part of a divorce case. However, when this is not done, a separate petition must be filed in order to change the name of an adult or of a minor child. While this is one of the less complicated areas of law, it can become complicated trying to navigate the different statutes and forms for the different types of name changes. Changing the name of a minor child also comes with its own set of complications, and is typically more difficult than an adult requesting to change their own name. We are able to assist with ensuring that the petition for your requested name change is properly completed and filed, and will attend any necessary court hearings with you. Having the guidance and assistance of an attorney provides peace of mind, knowing that your name change case is being handled properly.
