Name Change

Superior Court
(213) 830-0803

Mandatory Judicial Council forms are required for changing your name. To change your name by the court petition method, contact your local Superior Court clerk for the proper forms or print them from the Los Angeles County Superior Court website at lasuperiorcourt.org/forms. You will need the Petition for Change of Name, Decree Changing Name and Order to Show Cause for Change of Name.

It is not necessary to obtain a court decree to change your name. Generally, you just start using the new name, and change every place where it appears - driver's license, bank records, Social Security, etc. However, it is illegal to change your name to hide your identity in order to commit a fraud (such as concealing the fact that you're a registered sex offender).

Women are not required to obtain an order in a divorce decree to restore their maiden names, though it may assist in keeping vital statistics straight.
Women do not need to petition for a name change upon marriage. The marriage certificate is recorded and provides any and all documentation needed to provide a record at the state and county level of the basis for the change of name. This is true whether the wife decides to adopt her husband's name, use a hyphenated name, or just keep her maiden name.
