Public law change of the family name

Service Description

German name law is comprehensively and in principle conclusively regulated by the provisions of civil law. Against this background, the change of name under public law serves to eliminate inconveniences in individual cases. Such a name change has a chance of success if it is justified by the existence of an "important reason".

Good cause exists if the private interests of you as the name bearer worthy of protection in the name change outweigh the following

  • the public interest in retaining the previous name
  • the conflicting interests of other parties worthy of protection.
