Overview

The complete guide to changing your name in California!

Divorce, complicated spelling, tricky pronunciation, personal preference — there are lots of reasons to change a name. And though the rules have changed recently, it's still a relatively straightforward procedure in the Golden State.

How to Change Your Name in California provides the step-by-step instructions and legal forms you need to:

- choose a name and make it your own
- change back to your former name after divorce
- change your child's name
- get a new or amended birth certificate for you or your child
- get a new driver license, Social Security card and passport
- get a court to recognize a change of gender

This edition reflects the latest rules and regulations on changing your name, a new section on changing your name after a same-sex marriage, including discussion of potential conflicts between state and federal law that can affect how the name change process turns out. Plus, it's been updated to reflect a recent law that allows either spouse to change their name after marriage.
