Surname Change


If a change of surname outside the regulations of civil law (i.e. not, for example, in the case of marriage or divorce) is desired, this must be applied for as a change of name under public law at the competent authority.

Process flow

For a person with limited legal capacity, the legal representative submits the application (father, mother, guardian, guardian). A guardian or guardian requires the approval of the guardianship court. The approval of the guardianship court and proof of the outcome of the guardianship court hearing of the applicant must be attached to the application.

Further questions about the application will be answered by the competent authority.

Who should I contact?

Responsibility lies with the municipality, the Joint Community and the city in which the applicant has his or her residence.

Requirements

  • German within the meaning of Article 116 (1) of the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany (GG), stateless persons, homeless foreigners, foreign refugees or persons entitled to asylum
  • Existence of an important reason, which must be included in detail in the application

For the following reasons for change, further requirements apply, which are included in the respective service:

  • Declaration on the use of names of spouses
  • Declaration on the use of names of life partners

In individual cases, further documents and evidence may be required to process the application. Information on this can be obtained from the competent authority.

What are the fees?
