It's All in the Name

There have been many questions lately about how to change a child's name. Frankly, this is a fairly simplistic process whereby a Petition for Name Change is filed with the Court expressing why it is in the best interest of the child for his or her name to be changed and that the change is not for an illegal or ulterior purpose. A state and national criminal background check is required, but can be done relatively quickly and without a hefty price tag. It can be possible to change a child's name in conjunction with a paternity or divorce case, though the same burden must be proven to the Court.
