There are two different fees when you file a name change petition in Wyoming.
First, you will need to pay a filing fee with your local court. The filing fee is generally $120. In cases of hardship the court will consider waiving this fee.
Second, you will need to pay a fee to your local newspaper to publish a notification of your name change. The cost of this will vary by the newspaper. We strongly recommend contacting your local newspaper to determine this cost before you proceed. The cost of publication is often $300 or more.
Please note the court does not charge filing fees for name restorations within 60 days of a divorce.
