FAQ - Name Change

I would like to change the name of my child and amend the birth certificate to reflect the new name.  What do I do?

If you want to amend the birth certificate to reflect the father's last name and the parents were not married, you can file to establish paternity.  If you want to legally change the name of a minor child, use the appropriate legal form and file them with the court.
