Indianapolis, Indiana, Legal Name Change

As skilled Indianapolis family law attorneys, we represent many types of clients. If you require assistance with a name change, we can adjust to the unique factors in your case. We handle name changes involving:

  • Transgender name change

A Note About Transgender Name Change

We represent LGBTQ clients throughout Indianapolis. If you have gone through gender reassignment surgery or are in the process of transitioning and changed your name, you will want to make sure your Social Security card, driver’s license, birth certificate and passport reflect your new name. Whether you are male to female or female to male, we can assist with your name change.

There are certain requirements per Indiana statute regarding name changes. For example, a person’s criminal history will be explored to prevent the individual from changing his or her name for the purpose of avoiding criminal ties. Additionally, the individual will be required to run his or her hearing date in the newspaper for three weeks prior.

Changing your name is for many people an exciting experience. We work closely with you to ensure the process is a positive one that results in a legal name change.
