NAME CHANGE DURING A PRO SE DIVORCE IN MINNESOTA

Requesting the name change as part of the Minnesota divorce action saves people from initiating a separate proceeding later [Minnesota Statutes Domestic Relations (Ch. 517-519A) ยง 518.27]. Once the Final Decree of Divorce is handed down the name change is included, and a certified copy of this Decree can be used to effect name changes in Social Security records and the driverโ€™s license department.

If a divorce is finalized and does not contain a court order that restores a maiden name, it may be possible to amend the court order to include such language.

A Petition for a change of name apart from a divorce proceeding is a stand-alone process and means a separate court action. Residents of six months standing must complete a Petition stating the reasons for a name change, and submit it to the local state district court; provide a description of all lands in Minnesota; undergo a state and federal criminal history check; arrange for a court hearing date and attend in person; prove identity before the court using at least two witnesses; and convince the judge to change the name.

Once satisfied, a court can issue an order changing the petitionerโ€™s name. The order is documented in the court's records, and the petitioner can obtain certified copies to be used to effect name changes in Social Security records and the driverโ€™s license department.
