If you live in Maricopa County, you may want to review the application for name change of a minor on the Superior Court's self service portion of the website to find out more information. Note that you can only apply for the name change if you are the child's parent or guardian. The Superior Court's website lists the procedures for how to file a name change with the Maricopa County Superior Court.
