Why do people change their names?
Perhaps one of the most common reasons for legal name changes is simply
a dislike for ones current legal name. While we have the ability to decide
many things in life, unfortunately our birth name is not one of them.
Perhaps there is a misspelling in your birth name, or you desire a more
unique name to reflect your personality and identity. Whatever your cause
for disliking your current name, there exists the option to change it
in a way that better reflects yourself.
In New York City, a person can seek to change their name for nearly any
reason, so as long as their purpose is not to avoid paying their financial
obligations and there isn't a fraudulent intent. Some common reasons
for people seeking to change their names are:
- Security & Privacy Concerns
- Sex Change
- Religious Conversion
- Fresh Start
- And many more...
- A person must be at least 18 years old to obtain an Order of Name Change
from the court.
- To obtain a name change for children under 18 years old, both parents must
be involved and not object. A judge will make a determination as to whether
the petition for name change is in the best interests of the child.
