Name Change Law and Procedures

PUBLICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR NAME CHANGES IN COLORADO

With limited exceptions, persons seeking to change their name under Colorado law are required to publish notice of their new names. The publication requirements are set forth in the Section 13-15-102 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, which provides as follows:

13-15-102. Publication of change.

(1) Public notice of a change of name shall be given at least three times within twenty-one days after the court orders publication pursuant to section 13-15-101 (1.5). The person changing his or her name shall cause such public notice to be given in a newspaper published in the county in which the person resides. If no newspaper is published in that county, such notice shall be published in a newspaper in such county as the court directs.

(2) Public notice of such name change through publication as required in subsection (1) of this section shall not be required if the petitioner has been:

(a) The victim of a crime, the underlying factual basis of which has been found by the court on the record to include an act of domestic violence, as defined in section 18-6-800.3(1), C.R.S.;

(b) The victim of child abuse, as defined in section 18-6-401, C.R.S.; or

(c) The victim of domestic abuse as that term is defined in section 13-14-101(2).
