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:

  1. Divorce
  2. Fraud
  3. Adoption
  4. Security & Privacy Concerns
  5. Sex Change
  6. Religious Conversion
  7. Fresh Start
  8. And many more...

Age Requirements:

  • 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.
