Changing Your Name
The Circuit Clerk's website has a name change packet (pdf) available if you want to do it yourself.
If you want Student Legal Service to handle it for you, please fill out and submit the intake form "Name Change" on our website to set up an appointment to meet with an attorney. You must come in to the SLS offices, 324-326 Illini Union with your i-card to set one up.
The current cost to file a Petition for Name Change is $248.00 (Spring 2019). The cost to place an ad in a newspaper of general circulation, for example The News-Gazette in Champaign, is approximately $70.00 at this time.
If you are not a current student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign or you prefer to do it on your own, you can use the forms in the link above.
Application for Fee Waiver
An application for a fee waiver may be filed with the Champaign County Circuit Clerk for those who are unable to proceed in action without payment of fees, costs, and charges, and payment of those charges by the person in question would result in substantial hardship.
