Name Changes


The following information is provided as a convenience to those interested in name changes pursuant to state law, but it should not be construed as legal advice.

Changing a name upon marriage does not require a Court Order. Begin using the new name immediately after the marriage ceremony.

Reverting to a maiden name after the final divorce decree requires a separate petition. The Application for Change of Name and Order may be obtained from the Clerk's Office. The filing fee is $35.

Other places to change your name

There may be other agencies, businesses and/or associates that may need to be notified that your name has changed.
