What if I want to change the last name of a child whose parent is dead?

If, when you are going to court to change the last name of a child and either of the child’s parents are dead, check the box in the Original Petition to Change Child's Name that says a parent is deceased, and attach a copy of the parent’s death certificate. Keep the original death certificate. You will need it when you go to court.
