Name Changes

A name change is most frequently associated with marriage, divorce, and adoption.

The probate court will consider reasons for why a name should be changed. For example, in the case of adoption a child’s name could be changed to the that of the adopting parent.

In the case of divorce a woman might request that here name be legally changed to her maiden name.
