Name Change

questions & answers

Question: if my birth certificate only has my last name do i still have to pay to change my name?

Answer: In order to legally change your name you must prepare three documents:

   1. Petition for Change of Name (also called an   Application for Change of Name);

   2. an Order of Name Change; and

   3. a Notice of Hearing Regarding Application for Name Change.

These forms can be found on the Internet at the Self Service Center of the Maricopa County Superior Court , or in person at your county superior court.  The name change forms were prepared for use in Maricopa County but can be used in other Arizona counties if you change "Maricopa" to your county name in the pleadings. Make sure you fill out the papers completely and that they are legible. Along with the forms, you can obtain a complete set of instructions for filing the petition.
