Name Changes

An attorney can prepare the necessary paperwork for a name change. If you choose to try to obtain a name change without an attorney, Marion County has prepared a detailed set of forms and instructions for name changes. The instructions explain which forms you will need, how to fill them out, and how to file them. There is one set of forms and instructions for adults, and another for minors. While you can also prepare your own name change paperwork, the court prefers that you use the forms developed by the court. You may purchase hard copies of the forms and instructions from the family law department at the courthouse for 25 cents per page.
