The process for a legal change in California generally looks like this:

  • File appropriate forms with the court clerk (we fill out the forms and file for you).
  • Publish the Order to Show Cause for Change of Name (if required).  In some situations the change of name can be kept confidential.
  • Attend the court hearing and have the Judge sign the decree of legal name change.
