Family Law

Name Change

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.
