In order to obtain a legal name change, you first must file a document called the Original Petition for Change of Name. In correspondence with Texas law, the petition needs to be verified. This requires the petitioner signing and swearing in the front of a notary that all the information contained is true. Then the petition is submitted to the district clerk in the county in which the petitioner lives and the clerk passes it on to a particular court to be decided.

While this process can be complicated and confusing, Joseph F. Zellmer offers expert legal advice and strategies to achieve your desired results while protecting your rights and interests.
