Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
What forms need to be filed in court to have a minors last name changed in Brazoria Texas. Not a legal name change just a name change for school purposes etc. Once he is 18 he will legally change it himself. I had previously spoken with an attorney and was given details of basically getting an alias name. He could have his last name changed for school purposes etc, just not legally for credit, etc. But I cant remember which forms we were to use and to request this info again will cost me more money as my lawyer wont do free consults. Pretty crappy to not offer the info again as it was already offered last year. But anyway, still needing to get this done and the courts referred me to the lawinfo site, but the form isn't on there.
HI, that site does not help. That is for a legal name change and both parents agreeing on the name change.
His father is nonexistent and has been for 15 years. He cant legally have his name changed until he is 18 on his own. Therefore we were advised we can still change it for school purposes etc but it wont be legal, it will be as an alias. Unfortunatly I cant find the form for this. The site you gave me even says if both parents don't agree than that form cant be used, but a name change can still be done just not with that form.
These forms look more inline to what I am needing, but these are for Collin County. Do you know the form # or how I can access the Brazoria County forms?
Thank You. In reading all of the forms from the link, it still looks as if these forms are for both parents being involved, one being notified and the other being present. We don't have the fathers information or a way of notifying. I will see if we can still use this type of form in the courts this week and will get back to you on if this helped.
