Name Change

questions & answers

Question: What is the price of a name change? I have 3 minor children and want their last names to be the same as mine, what all do I have to do and how much will it cost me?

Answer: The following is provided for general information only.  For information about how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly.  The process for changing the name of a child will depend on the age of the child.  Before the child is one year of age, the name can be changed administratively, but after the child is one year old, a name change requiresa court order.  The Arizona Department for Health Services offers information on changing the name of a child.  The Name Change Article, on this website, also contains helpful information about changing the name of a minor child.  Forms and costs will differ by county and can be obtained at your local superior court.
