If you have made the decision to change your name, you will need a court order to do so. Our legal team can help you navigate the process of having your name changed, but there are some initial steps you should start taking to make the process move faster. Some information you will need in the name change process are:
- Current Name

Does The Court Need To Be Involved To Change A Name?
When changing your name in the state of Texas, you will need a court order. There are a few scenarios where you may not need a court order to go about changing your name. One example of that is if you were recently married and want to change your last name to your spouse's last name. In that scenario, you may be able to change your last name by providing proof of your marriage to the social security office and a driver’s license office.
