Name Change

questions & answers

Question: What is the fee when changing your name? Also will I be able to change my first and middle only?

Answer: The cost for a name change depends on what county you are in. For example, according to the Maricopa County Superior Court’s fee schedule located here, the filing fee for a name change request is $301.00. On the other hand, in Pima County, the Clerk of Court’s fee schedule shows the filing fee for a name change request at $236.00. Both the Maricopa County Superior Court and the Pima County Superior Court have forms with instructions available online for you to read and fill out in order to change your name. You can access the Maricopa County forms here, and the Pima County forms here. Neither form gives any indication that you must change your last name as well.
