Legal Name Change

It is recommended that an attorney be retained to apply for a legal name change. A Petition for Name Change and an Order granting the name change will be required for the hearing. The Petition and the Order should explain the reasons why a change of name is desired. Once you have your documents prepared a hearing date should be set before the Judge of the General Sessions Court.

Please note: The clerk's cannot assist you with the preparation of the required documents. It will be your responsibility to see that the documents are prepared correctly.
