LEGAL NAME CHANGE DURING A PRO SE DIVORCE IN WASHINGTON

Washington State gives courts the power to change a name as part of the divorce process. Many divorcing women wish to resume the name that they had before getting married, which is why it is very common to have a name change occur as part of the divorce. The simplest way to change a name is to include the request as part of the divorce petition. The court then orders the change of name to the final divorce decree. Just like the marriage certificate, the divorce decree is proof of the name change.

After the divorce is complete, the petitioner faces extra steps. After the petition has been approved, the petitioner receives a certified copy of the order that officially changes the name.

The spouse can begin the process of converting all of her important documents to the new name, including the driver’s license or state identification card, passport, birth certificate, Social Security card, bank accounts and credit cards, and property titles.

Changing a name outside of marriage or divorce requires petitioning a court for an order granting a change of name. Washington makes it easier than many other states, but it still takes time. This will likely involve filling out an application petitioning for a name change; stating reasons for seeking a change of name; filing the petition in the local district court; going through the legal process involved in requesting a court order changing a name. [Washington Revised Code Title 4. Civil Procedure § 4.24.130].
