GA Name Change - Minor Child
Certain adults with legal rights regarding the minor child will need to be notified of the proposed legal action. Any non-petitioning parent, managing conservator or legal guardian will need to be notified. The applicant is required to do this even if (s)he has sole custody of the child. Similarly, if the applicant is the child's legal guardian, they will also need to serve the child's parents. Consent should be obtained from any non-petitioning parent who has not terminated their parental rights. NOTE: The written consent of a parent shall not be required if the parent has not contributed to the support of the child for a continuous period of five (5) years or more immediately preceding the filing of the Petition.
