How do I change a name? How much does it cost?

You must have a Petition and Order ready to be presented to the judge. The forms can be found at Forms page or can be obtained from the Clerk’s Office. It costs $166.50 to do a name change. You DO NOT have to have an attorney. For more information please see the Name Change Information. CORRECTING BIRTH RECORD A correction of a birth record is different from a change of name in that an error has been made and needs correcting. For example, the birthday is the 5th instead of the 6th or the name was misspelled. You will need to bring your birth certificate and a second form of identification. The cost for correcting a birth record is $166.50. NOTE: If you are changing the name of a minor child, both parents must be present OR have a notarized statement from the absent parent.
