If you are seeking an adult or child name change, several pieces of information are needed:

  • Current name
  • Place of residence
  • New full name requested
  • Reason the change in name is requested
  • For an adult, if he or she has ever had a criminal charge and/or conviction
  • For some children, written consent depending on the age of the child

The name change petition in Texas must also include the petitioner's driver's license numbers, his or her social security number, gender, race, and date of birth. In the case of a child, the court will decide if the name change is in the best interest of the child. Our firm's role is to assist you with the technical aspects of obtaining a name change in court so you can move forward in life.

Is There a Time Limit to Change Your Name After a Divorce in Texas?

After a divorce, many women choose to revert to their maiden name. In Texas, you have the option of changing your name back to your maiden name or keeping your married name. The process for changing your name is generally simple and can be done by filing a Petition for Name Change with the court. However, there are a few requirements that must be met before the court will grant your request. 

You must submit a completed Name Change Request Form, which is available from the clerk of court's office. 

Once your Petition for Name Change has been approved, you will need to notify various government agencies, businesses, and financial institutions of your new name. While it may take some time and effort to change your name after divorce, many women find that it is worth it to start fresh with a new name.
