Adult Name Changes
A person who wishes to attain a legal name change may file an application with the probate court where the person wishing to change names resides. The applicant must have resided in the county for the past 60 days. The court may choose to publish the name change application in the local newspaper. This may require the posting of additional funds with the court to cover the cost of publication. The filing fee is $83.50 for adult name changes. If publication is required, the filing fee is instead $153.50.
