Good evening!

A petition to change a minor's name can be filed at the Clerk of Court's Office.

The link below contains instructions and forms for changing a minor's name.
This link is specific to Collin county. However, the instructions would apply in any Texas county.
The forms would generally be the same aside from the name of the county listed on the forms.
Accordingly, I know you'll find this link informative.
