Name Change

questions & answers

Question: I filed to change my name and have a hearing date. Is it possible to amend the filing prior to the hearing to make changes?

Answer:

You may need to contact the superior court where you submitted a request for name change. They will let you know if the deadline had past yet to amend, and or make any other changes. It should be possible to amend your request and or “cancel”; however there may or may not be a fee, so it is important that you contact your court.
