My son was adopted by my husband when he was 6. If for some reason could he change his last name back when he is 18?
Yes. Once a person reaches the age of majority, they can legally change their name so long as they have not committed any felonies and are not trying to avoid creditors, by a petition to their local chancery court. Make certain to procure experienced counsel to help you in this matter, should you see fit.
Yes an adult can get gis name changed without any problems. In fact if all partues are in agreement, it could be changed now. If you have divorced his stepparent, it is still possible to get the name changed with a little more difficulty.
Yes. 18 is the age of majority in Tennessee. Your son could change his name, except for certain limited circumstances.
