Alaska law requires that name changes are done in Alaska Superior Court. A petition for a name change must be filed with the Court and approved by a Judge.
The Alaska Court System provides form packets, with instructions, to petition for a name change.
There is one form packed for adults and a separate one for children (under age 18). A person who is under 18, but who has been emancipated, should use the adult forms.
These forms are not needed to change your name as part of a divorce or dissolution.
