District Court

Name Changes

How do I petition to change my name?

You may petition the District Court to change your name for any reason except for the purpose of defrauding or misleading another person.

How do I petition to change my child's name?

You may petition the District Court to change the name of your minor child. The Court may grant the petition if the name change promotes the minor's best interest, and if both living parents consent to the name change. If one parent does not consent, you must have notice of the proposed name change served on that parent.

I am the victim of domestic violence and don't want my abuser to know my new name. What do I do?

If you, your child, or your ward is the victim of domestic violence and you wish to have your name change file sealed because of a reasonable fear for your safety, you may file your petition for name change with the Chelan County Superior Court by going to the office of the Chelan County Clerk on the fifth floor of the courthouse, 350 Orondo Avenue,
Wenatchee, Washington 98801.
