Divorce, complicated spelling, tricky pronunciation, personal preference -- there are several reasons why you may want to change your name. And though the rules have changed recently, it's still a relatively straightforward procedure.

How to Change Your Name in California provides step-by-step instructions and all the forms you need to:

  • choose a name and make it your own
  • change back to your former name after divorce
  • change your child's name
  • get a new or amended birth certificate for you or your child
  • get a new driver license, Social Security card and passport
  • get a court to recognize a change of gender

    This edition reflects the latest rules and regulations stemming from the Patriot Act and the rise of identity theft, and provides the latest forms as tear-outs.
