Changing Children's Names

The recent Appeals Court case, Petition of Two Minors for Change of Name, 65 Mass. App. Ct. 850 (2006), provides the best summary we've seen of what constitutes "best interests of the child" when a parent wants to change a child's name after divorce. This case, forms, and much more information about name changes for adults and children are available at Mass. Law About Name Changes.
