Request a Name Change
Please visit the Supreme Court of Texas website for detailed instructions to request a name change with the Supreme Court of Texas.
To request a name change, you must email the following items to the Supreme Court of Texas at SCNameChanges@txcourts.gov:
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 ID requirement.
Replacement Bar Card Order Form. Only email this form to the Supreme Court if you require a replacement bar card under your new name.
A new law license certificate can be ordered after your name change is complete. Please follow the directions under “Name Changes” at 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 above and on the Supreme Court of Texas website. A new law license may not be purchased with a credit card payment.]
It takes about 2-3 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 Clerk's office at the Texas Supreme Court with any questions at (512) 463-1312.
