General  Resources

Making a change to your Identity

I need to make identity changes and I am a resident of Indiana.  
If you are an Indiana resident the process begins on the Self-Service Legal Center of the Indiana government website.  The next step is to fill out the form packet found on the website. It can either be done electronically or can be printed and written out. Once the packet is completed, you must print the forms, sign the forms, make copies, and take them to the Clerk of the Court.  Review your local court rules to find out how many copies you will need, and any additional forms or procedures required in your county .Once these have been taken to the Clerk of the Court you’ll be given a case number and process the forms. The Clerk will stamp the forms with a filing date and give you back a copy. You will need to take the Notice of Petition for Change of Name to the person who handles legal notices in your local newspaper. This Notice must appear once a week for three weeks. The last publication date must be at least thirty days before your hearing date. The newspaper will send a proof of publication notice to you, which you will attach to the Notice of Filing Proof of Publication and then file these forms with the Court. Once your name has been changed, it is your responsibility to inform government agencies, your employer, your creditors, and other interested agencies and businesses of your new name.

 What do I need to do after that?
There are some  good things you should do

You’ll also need to change your name on your social security card. The steps to changing your name on your social security card can be found here in great detail on the website of social security.  This can also be done by going to the office of Social Security Administration here in town, is located at 515 W Patterson Drive Bloomington, Indiana 47403.   For more information about the Social Security Administration office, please follow this link.

You’ll also want to change your name on a new driver’s license, permit, or identification card. To see the various things you’ll need to do so please check out the BMV’s page on Proving Your Identity.

This process can be exceedingly confusion. If you are an IU student looking for help, consider contacting Student Legal Services.
