When is consent from the other parent required for a minor's name change?

If none of the factors in Indiana Code 31-19-9-8 apply, then consent from the other parent or guardian is required.

Consent is not required when, for example, the other parent has abandoned or deserted the minor, failed to communicate significantly with the minor, or if the parent has committed a crime against the child. See Indiana Code 31-19-9-8 for more information
