Changing Your Last Name and the Names of Your Children

Texas law provides that name changes can be issued in a divorce decree as long as they are for a prior-used name. A name change to something completely new cannot be adopted into your divorce decree. To obtain a name change outside of a divorce, a separate suit must be initiated with evidence that you are not attempting to defraud creditors or avoid criminal prosecution.

If you wish to file a name change with your divorce or file a separate suit for a name change, Attorney Hart will be there to assist you. He can also help you change the name of your minor child in appropriate cases.

When you obtain a name change, the district clerk will issue a "Change of Name Certificate." This document will highlight your name prior to the change and your new name. It will also show the date the request was made and other important information relating to your name change. This document may assist you in obtaining new documents, such as your driver's license.
