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 have not been convicted of a felony and are not attempting to defraud creditors or to 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.
