An Act To Amend the Law Governing Name Changes

Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:

Sec. 1. 18-C MRSA §1-701, sub-§2, ¶A,  as enacted by PL 2017, c. 402, Pt. A, §2 and affected by Pt. F, §1, is repealed.


This bill amends the law governing name changes to allow a probate judge to limit the notice requirement for anyone who shows by a preponderance of the evidence that the person seeking the name change is in reasonable fear of the person's safety, not just for domestic abuse victims.
