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 in Idaho with the court whose jurisdiction they reside.
Petition for name change in Idaho includes:
- current name
- place of birth
- proposed new name
- reasoning behind changing the current name
After filing the petition and the fee for a name change in Idaho, 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.
