California Name Change Laws

To obtain a legal name change in California, the applicant must submit a petition to the court for a name change order. If the name change is related to gender, the applicant should not have to attend an in-person hearing and does not need to publish notice of their name change in the newspaper.
 
Starting in September 2018, people who are incarcerated in California can apply for legal name changes without prior approval by correction officials (See SB310).  The courts will deny registered sex offender petitions unless they determine it will not adversely affect public safety. (Statute: Cal. Civ. Proc. Code §§1275-1279.6). 
 
For instructions on legal name changes for minors under 18 in California, see NCTE's Name Changes for Minors in California resource.
