Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Name change; preventing identity theft. Provides that the court order granting a name change contains only the person's old name or names, new name, and address, and not the sensitive information (such as the applicant's mother's maiden name and possibly the applicant's social security number) required for the name change application. The bill thus protects sensitive information from being included in the public order and deed books, while ensuring that all necessary information is retained in the person's complete court file and is transmitted, as necessary, to the State Registrar of Vital Records and the Central Criminal Records Exchange. The bill also requires that name changes ordered as part of a decree of divorce are issued as separate orders, so that detailed and sensitive information contained within the decree of divorce (such as the names of minor children, and custody and support arrangements) is not disclosed in the order or deed books.
