Name Changes are Easy!

Updated: Apr 22, 2023

Lots of people ask me about changing their name, and while I'm happy to help, it's so easy you can do it yourself. Start off by checking your local court's webpages.

For Example:

If you visit those sites, you'll see that the process is very straight forward.

For Arlington County, you fill out a form and mail it to the court with a $44 payment. It takes about 6-8 weeks for you to get your response back by mail. Minors need authorization from their parents.

For Fairfax, they have posted a brochure that walks you through the details. You download the correct form, print single sided and mail in with $41 payment with a self addressed stamped envelope.

In Loudoun County, you file the posted form in the Circuit Court, pay the $41 fee, and need the approval of both parents for a minor child.
