Name Change Requirements of California

The court is usually willing to accept a name change for almost any good reason. However, the issuance of a name change application is decided by the Court. For a name change order/decree/judgment to be issued, the Court must see compliance with the notice requirements and requirements for the allegations in the petition. The court must also find a good and sufficient reason for the change, find the change in the public interest, and if the name change is for a minor, the change is due to minors’ best interests.
