  • How do I change my name in Texas?

    When a name change is part of a marriage or divorce, the request is processed as part of the marriage license or Final Decree of Divorce.

    Changing your name in Texas outside of a marriage or a divorce is a different process. To change your legal name, you must file a Texas Name Change Petition and Order with the court. If your petition meets all requirements and you are not changing your name to avoid legal trouble, the court will sign an order granting you a new name.

    See legal references for a Name Change Petition Order in Texas: Texas Family Code - FAM § 45.102
