Question by  o3 (9)

Are there any fees for changing your name?

I want a legal name change. I don't know much about how to do it though.

There is a fee. An attorney can prepare the proper documents, file the request and accompany you to court to petition for the name change. Expect to pay $300 - $600, depending on where you live.

Yes there are fee's. Often there are filing fee's, the fee to request a recent certified copy of your birth certificate and the cost of copies. Most jurisdictions require at least two copies and in some states you must publish the name change in a paper, which will also cost.

In New York there are no filing fees for a name change, bu you will incur a fee with Motor vehicle to change your license

Depending on the state where you live you may have to take out an ad in the paper and there is also a fee involved when you file it at the courthouse.
