How can I get a court order to legally change the name of my 6yr old child?
I wish to combine his first and middle names, as this is what everyone calls him. We did the paperwork, but it was rejected and we we're told we needed a court order.
You should contact your local municipal or district court. They are the ones that normally do name changes. They can provide you the paperwork and the process. You would probably need to go to court with the child and fill out the paperwork and they would schedule the hearing. It could be the same day. Court will want to know why you are changing the name, if it is being done for fraudulent purposes, and if anybody would object to it.
