Request a Name Change

To request a name change, email the following items to the State Bar of Texas Membership Department at

  • Request for Attorney Name Change Form

  • A copy of a valid government-issued identification card showing your new name (e.g. driver’s license, Social Security card, passport, etc.). Court orders and marriage certificates do not meet the ID requirement.

A new law license certificate can be ordered after your name change is complete. Please follow the directions under “Attorney Certificates, Licensing & Name Changes” on the Supreme Court of Texas website to order your new law license.

[PLEASE NOTE: When ordering both a replacement bar card and a new law license, two separate payments are required as described on the form and website. A new law license may not be purchased with a credit card payment.]

It takes one to two weeks to complete a name change request. If requested, the new bar card and/or law license will be mailed to you upon completion of the name change process.

Please contact the Membership Department at 512-427-1383 or with any questions.
