Name Change

Change of name - in a divorce case, the Wife may choose to go back to her maiden name or a former name.  This is solely the Wife's decision.  The Husband cannot control whether the Wife wishes to go back to a maiden or former name.

 

CHANGE OF NAME - Adults.  An adult may change his or her name as long as he or she is not convicted of certain offenses, is not required to register as a sex offender and has lived in the State of Illinois for at least six months.

CHANGE OF NAME - Minors.  A minor's name may be changed by agreement of the parents.  If a parent objects to a request for a name change,  the Court will make a decision regarding what is in the best interests of the child.  Some factors the Court will take into consideration are the child's age, how long the child has used a name, whether its the one on his/her birth certificate or not, and the wishes of the parents and the child.
