Criminal History Check Release for Name Change of a Minor
Minnesota Statute requires that the Court shall determine whether any person that is seeking to have their name changed has a criminal history in this or any other state. The court may conduct a search of national records through the Federal Bureau of Investigation by submitting a set of fingerprints and the required fee to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. To comply with Minn. Stat. § 259.11, you must supply the following information and attach this document when you file your application. You must complete a separate form for each party covered on the application, including a form for each minor that is 10 years of age or older. If there is a criminal history, both the court administrator and the name change applicant must report the name change to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension within ten days of the date of filing. (See instructions for additional information.)
