SUMMARY OF BILL
REPORTED FROM COMMITTEE
Ways and Means
The bill would amend Chapter XI (Change of Name of Adult or Minor) of the Probate Code to allow the name of a minor to be changed with the consent of the custodial parent and after a hearing, if the other parent had been convicted of first- or second- degree murder.
The bill would have no fiscal impact on State or local government.
