Translation of Documents Regarding Change of Name. German-English

In Germany, the rights related to the use of names is governed by various provisions in the Civil Code. These provisions in the Civil Code contain various options for you to have names changed as part of family-law matters such as birth, marriage, divorce, registration of a civil partnership, determination of descent or adoption.

Change of names can also be applied for if the surname is from another country/language and if you wish to make your foreign name sound more German after naturalisation in Germany. The same applies to changing the spelling of given names.
