Summary
Summary
The Civil and Small Claims Advisory Committee recommends changes to 21 forms to implement statutory changes in Assembly Bill 218 (Stats. 2021, ch. 577) and Assembly Bill 421 (Stats. 2022, ch. 40). Together, these bills (1) authorize petitions for recognition of change of gender to be joined with requests to have various administrative records issued to reflect the petitioner's changed gender; (2) allow non-California residents to petition to have their names and gender changed on certain administrative records issued in California; (3) add a new category of petitioners who may bring name- or gender-change petitions on behalf of minors; and (4) change when a minor's grandparents must receive notice of a petition to recognize a change in the minor's gender. The proposed forms address these statutory changes.
