Name Change

In some countries (e.g. Spain), having a double surname is quite normal. There, children often use both their father’s and mother’s surname. Under Dutch law, this is not allowed. If your child is of another nationality, under certain conditions the use of a double surname for your child is allowed in the Netherlands. Because our firm specializes in international family law, we often deal with these issues. Please contact our office if you have questions about a name change.
