Name Change in Summerville, SC

In South Carolina, there are two separate processes for changing your name. If you are changing your name at the time of your divorce it is incredibly simple and will be done when your divorce is finalized.

If you would like to change your name and it is not at the time of a divorce you will need to contact an attorney to help you though that process.


You will need:

  • Your long form birth certificate

  • South Carolina Law Enforcement Division Criminal Record and Fingerprints

  • South Carolina Law Enforcement Division Sex Offender Registry Confirmation

  • South Carolina Department of Social Services Child Abuse Registry Confirmation 

  • An Affidavit if you are under a court order to pay child support or alimony

  • Must have a hearing before a Family Court Judge

If you are considering a name change the attorneys of Templeton Mims & Ward are here to help. The legal process can be incredibly confusing at times but it is our job to help you navigate those legal issues to get you the results that you deserve.
