Name Change


A person desiring to change their name may file an action in the District Court of their residence. A person is free to choose any name he/she wants, provided it is not done for fraudulent purposes. Forms are available in the District Court Administration Office. The non-refundable filing fee is $195.50 (cash/credit-debit) for individual or minor name changes and $196.50 (cash/credit-debit) for family name changes.

Any person requesting that their name change be sealed should contact Superior Court at (564) 397-2292.
