In Texas, a court can be petitioned for a name change for a child or an adult. Typically, a name change for a child is sought when the child’s parents have divorced or separated and the child will have the same last name as the custodial parent. However, it must be in the child’s best interest to have the name change. A name change for an adult can be petitioned for many purposes, such as divorce, as long as it is not wrongful, fraudulent or capricious. A name change for an adult will not be granted if the purpose of the change is to avoid criminal prosecution or to avoid creditors.
