Name Change Orders in Illinois
There are several reasons you may want to change your name, including:
- Marriage: A name change after a marriage is not automatic, but the process is fairly straightforward and does not require a court order. Usually, all that is required is to present a certified copy of your marriage certificate to relevant agencies such as the DMV, the Social Security Administration, and the IRS.
- Divorce: The simplest way to change your name during a marriage dissolution is to request that it be added to the divorce decree. If this was not done at the time the divorce was finalized, then a separate court proceeding is required.
- Adoption: In some instances, a name change order may be necessary after an adoption is finalized.
- Parentage: After establishing paternity, you may want to change the last name of the child to be the same as yours.
There may be other personal reasons for you to change your name or the name of a family member. In the case of a name change order for a minor, the consent of both parents is typically required. Whatever your circumstances, we can skillfully guide you through each step of the process.
