A: I don't believe you need to prove your domicile for change of name. Besides completing the required forms, you must provide your birth certificate and two forms of identification, one of which will likely be your driver's license which shows the town you live in. Domicile is mostly just to make sure that the Court has jurisdiction over you as a resident within the area that Court covers. Ex. the Milford/Orange Probate Court has jurisdiction over residents of Milford, CT and Orange, CT.
