MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 10, 2019 03:36 PM
From: Representative Jared G. Solomon and Rep. Brian Sims
To: All House members
Subject: Name Change Legislation
 
We plan to introduce legislation that reforms the way people change their name when married.

It reforms an archaic process that requires newly-married couples to jump through unnecessary and cumbersome hoops to change their names. Rather than sending people through the courts as is currently stipulated, this bill will make it a more efficient process through local prothonotary offices.

The bill also streamlines the name-change process by updating publication requirements to post online and sets up a database to search name changes (with some exceptions).

We hope you will join us in co-sponsoring this legislation.



Introduced as HB433
