Changing Your Name in Connecticut

Contributed by Sean Michael Peoples.

A Connecticut resident wanting to change his or her name may apply to the Probate Court for a name change. As long as the reason for the name change is not based on fraud or illicit activity, the Probate Court may grant the name change. Certain paperwork is required as part of the name change process. This paperwork includes an application form and an affidavit that includes, among other things, where the applicant resides and whether the applicant has been convicted of a crime. These forms are available on the Probate Court website at www.ctprobate.gov. An applicant must also show his or her birth certificate and two additional forms of identification. The Probate Court will then hold a hearing on the application. The cost of the name change is $225.00.
