How do you change the name on a deed after a divorce?

In Utah (where I practice divorce and family law), there is more than one way to transfer title to the marital home (assuming the parties own a home), but the most common and conventional way is the same way title to real property is transferred between any two parties: by deed. If a couple jointly owns their home and it gets awarded to one spouse alone in the divorce, then the spouse who was not awarded the house prepares (or has prepared for him/her) a deed that transfers his/her interest in the real property to the spouse who was awarded the house in the divorce action.

Do I have to publish name change in newspaper in Utah?

No, Utah law governing name change does not require you to publish in the newspaper your new name or the fact that you have changed your name. What happens in Utah is that you prepare your petition for name change, file it with the court, appear at a hearing before the court on your petition, and, if your petition is granted, your name is then officially and lawfully changed. You are not required to take any further steps.

Do I Need a Good Reason to Change My Name Legally?

Do I need a good reason to change my name legally?

In Utah, where I practice, you don’t have to have any particular reason for seeking a name change.

You can ask the court to change your first name, middle name, last name, or change everything to something new.

You could choose a completely new name that you’ve never had before, as long as you don’t choose a name that’s bizarre, unduly lengthy, ridiculous, or offensive to common decency and good taste, and as long as you’re not seeking a name change to avoid creditors, fines, or sentences in criminal actions, for an unworthy motive, or to commit fraud).

If you are divorcing you can ask the court to change your name as part of the divorce action without having to file a separate court action or having to pay a separate filing fee.
The laws in Utah governing a name change are found here: Utah Code Title 42, Chapter 1

How old do I have to be and how much does it cost to legally change my name?

In Utah, where I practice, you can have your name changed at any age, but if you are not an adult, you need your parent or guardian’s permission to change your name.

The cost of the filing fee to file a petition for name change with the court is, as of this writing, $360.

If you are divorcing you can ask the court to change your name as part of the divorce action (and you aren’t limited to changing your name to your maiden name only–you could choose a name you’ve never had before, as long as you don’t choose a name that is bizarre, unduly lengthy, ridiculous, or offensive to common decency and good taste, and as long as you’re not seeking a name change to avoid creditors, fines, or sentences in criminal actions, for an unworthy motive, or to commit fraud), without having to file a separate court action or having to pay a separate filing fee.
