Changing your name in Florida couldn’t be easier. Most name changes are allowed for pretty much any reason, as long as the forms are filled out correctly and filed properly. That’s why it’s common for people to handle name changes on their own without an attorney. The most challenging part of self-representation for uncontested basic matters is knowing which forms to fill out and how to file them. That’s why so many people are handling name changes on their own with the help of an experienced Florida name change legal document preparer.
One most common reason for a name change is to regain the use of a maiden name after a divorce. Another typical reason is to change the last name of a child after adoption. The court will examine the documents filed and make a determination that there is “good and sufficient reason” for the name change. They will also look at what is “consistent with the public interest.” This is not a difficult standard to meet as just about any legitimate reason will suffice. For minors, the court must determine whether the name change is in the child’s “best interests”. Generally, consents are required from every adult with legal rights over the child.
In most instances, the court will likely approve most name changes. That means you can change your name to Desktop, Office Chair, Table, or Fridge, or pretty much anything you desire. However, there are some names that the court will deem unacceptable. For example, you cannot change your name to an obscenity, racial slur, or other types of offensive words. You must also not choose a name for malicious reasons, such as changing your name to the same name as your ex-husband’s girlfriend. Additionally, you cannot change your name to the name of a celebrity or use punctuation in your name.
If you have been convicted of a felony, there are circumstances where the court might allow you to change your name. Just be mindful it’s unlikely that you will be successful with this on your own. If you are seeking a post-conviction name change, we can recommend an attorney to help you with your case.
