With the school year quickly coming to a close, we have seen an increase in calls from parents who would like to change their teen’s last name before high school graduation. The typical situation involves a teen that has been raised by a non-biological parent who has not adopted the teen. The teen has decided that they would rather take the last name of the parent who raised them. We would be happy to help legally change the names of teens in these circumstances. We can also advise the non-biological parent on additional steps they may wish to take as well, including the preparation of a will and/or completing an adult adoption, which is much less costly than a child adoption. Give us a call to discuss your options!
