Oregon – How To Change Your Name



The Name Change Notification process begins after your legal name change has been obtained (e.g. via marriage certificate, divorce decree or court order), and it involves officially informing all of the relevant governmental organizations and agencies, as well as other professional and personal service providers and affiliates of your name change. (If you have not yet obtained a legal name change, you should visit our Oregon Legal Name Change page.)

For a free, but more time-consuming alternative, we have broken down Name Change Notification into two major processes:

  1. Primary Name Change Notification: Notifying the relevant government agencies of your name change

  2. Secondary Name Change Notification: Notifying professional and personal affiliates and service providers of your name change

For each process, we have created an easy-to-follow check list with all the important links, to make your name change as smooth as possible. You should complete the Primary Name Change Notification steps first in the order that they appear, as the earlier steps are frequently prerequisites for the later ones. If, after reviewing the information below, you feel that you don’t have the time to complete all of these steps, this is by far the best alternative around.

Once you have completed the Primary Name Change Notification steps, you can go through the Secondary Name Change Notification steps.

Good Luck and Congratulations on your new name!

Proof of Legal Name Change Generally, proof of name change includes a certified marriage certificate, divorce decree, or other legal record (usually a court order). Most institutions below will require proof of your legal name change in order to complete the name change process. If you don’t already have this document, you can request it via the links to the right. If you have not yet obtained a legal name change, visit our Oregon Legal Name Change page. Be sure to keep a few copies of your proof of legal name change as a backup.
