New Jersey Divorce Lawyer Explains How to Change Your Name after Divorce
As an experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer, I am frequently asked about changing a last name during or after a divorce. If you’re looking to get a name change in New Jersey or you’re looking to have your child’s name changed in New Jersey, there’s several things you have to know. First, if you’re looking to get a name changed due to a divorce, you don’t need to file a separate proceeding. You can do that all through the divorce order.
However, if you or your child is looking to get their name changed for any other reason, you have to do a separate name-change proceeding. Within that name-change proceeding, we would file the complaint; you’d have to have that order published; then you’d go back for a final hearing, where that order would be published; and then you’d send a letter to the treasury; and your name would officially be changed. If you want to have your name changed or your child’s name changed, feel free to call us anytime.
