A petition to change the surname of a minor is filed in cases where the minor bears the surname of a parent and does not want to carry the name any longer. It should be emphasized that the Court gives great weight to the best interests of the child and his position on the matter. The name change petition is not submitted to the Interior Ministry, but rather to the Family Court by way of a written application with an attached affidavit and is subject to payment of a fee.
