Order of court; hearing on objections; disposition of order.
Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, the court shall make an order changing the name of the minor as prayed for in the petition upon being satisfied by the statements in the petition or other evidence that good reason exists, if:
The verified consent of the other parent is stated in the petition; or
No written objection is filed with the clerk within 10 days after the other parent is personally served or the last day of publication of notice as ordered in NRS 41.296, upon proof of the filing of the petition and evidence of service.
If, within the period described in paragraph (b) of subsection 1, an objection is filed, the court shall appoint a day for hearing the proofs, respectively, of the petitioning parent and the objection, upon reasonable notice. Upon that day, the court shall hear the proofs, and grant or refuse the prayer of the petitioning parent, according to whether the proofs show satisfactory reasons for making the change.
Upon the making of an order either granting or denying the prayer of the petitioning parent, the order must be recorded as a judgment of the court. If the petition is granted, the name of the minor must thereupon be as stated in the order and the clerk shall transmit a certified copy of the order to the State Registrar of Vital Statistics.
