Summary of Name Change Laws for Adults in Idaho
In Idaho, a legal adult who has good cause to change their name may do
so. However, they must file a petition for name change with the court
whose jurisdiction they reside.
This petition includes:
- current name
- place of birth
- proposed new name
- reasoning behind changing the current name
After filing the petition and the fee, the court will set up a hearing
at least 6 weeks after the date of filing. Additionally, the court will
issue a notice of the hearing that the petitioner must publish in local
publications at least once a week for 4 weeks.
If there are no objections filed concerning the name change, the court
will proceed with the hearing. This is usually an informal process where
a judge will hear any objections and determine whether to grant the name
change or not. If the court agrees to legally change the petitioner’s
name, the judge will sign the order and the name is changed.
