There are many reasons why people choose to change their names: to bring one’s name into congruence with one’s identity, to signify the beginning of a new phase of life.
Texas law allows a person to change his or her name for any reason, except to hide from creditors or law enforcement. Completing the name change process in Texas is not as simple as signing a form and appearing before a judge. Navigating the system with experienced personnel and legal counsel can make the process easier.

If you were convicted of a felony, you must wait two years after you complete your entire sentence before you may ask for a name change.
Your DPS Criminal History Report may also include enough sentencing information that you can use it as proof to show it’s been more than two years since you completed your sentence.
NOTE: A new Texas law was passed in 2019. Now, if you’ve been convicted of a felony, you can change your name to the primary name listed in your criminal history without waiting two years. This may help if you’ve been using your chosen name for a long time, and your chosen name is the primary name in your criminal history. You can check which names are listed in your criminal history by getting your DPS Criminal History Report.
