Name Change

Pennsylvania law provides a process for which an individual may request a legal change of his/her name, whether it is a change to one’s first name and/or last name.  Generally, the process involves the filing of a Petition in the Court of Common Pleas, a criminal record check, a lien search, publication of the requested change of name, and a hearing before the Court.
