(d) If notice is not sent in accordance with paragraph (b), and no time extension is granted

demand must be in the form of a civil complaint and must be filed with the court

alleges the vehicle was improperly seized, the claimant's interest in the vehicle seized, and
any affirmative defenses the claimant may have. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary,
an action for the return of a vehicle seized under this section may not be maintained by or
on behalf of any person who has been served with a notice of seizure and forfeiture unless
the person has complied with this subdivision.

(g) If the claimant makes a timely demand for a judicial determination under this
subdivision, the forfeiture proceedings must be conducted as provided under subdivision

MARRIAGE AND NAME CHANGE

Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 259.11, is amended to read:


259.11 ORDER; FILING COPIES.

(a) Upon meeting the requirements of section 259.10, the court shall grant the application
unless: (1) it finds that there is an intent to defraud or mislead; (2) section 259.13 prohibits
granting the name change; or (3) in the case of the change of a minor child's name, the court
finds that such name change is not in the best interests of the child. The court shall set forth
in the order the name and age of the applicant's spouse and each child of the applicant, if
any, and shall state a description of the lands, if any, in which the applicant and the spouse
and children, if any, claim to have an interest. The court administrator shall file such order,
and record the same in the judgment book. If lands be described therein, a certified copy of
the order shall be filed for record, by the applicant, with the county recorder of each county
wherein any of the same are situated. Before doing so the court administrator shall present
the same to the county auditor who shall enter the change of name in the auditor's official
records and note upon the instrument, over an official signature, the words "change of name
recorded." Any such order shall not be filed, nor any certified copy thereof be issued, until
the applicant shall have paid to the county recorder and court administrator the fee required
by law. No application shall be denied on the basis of the marital status of the applicant.

(b) When a person applies for a name change, the court shall determine whether the
person has a criminal history in this or any other state. The court may conduct a search of
national records through the Federal Bureau of Investigation by submitting a set of
fingerprints and the appropriate fee to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. If it is
determined that the person has a criminal history in this or any other state, the court shall,
within ten days after the name change application is granted, report the name change to the
Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The person whose name is changed shall also report the
change to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension within ten days. The court granting the
name change application must explain this reporting duty in its order. Any person required
to report the person's name change to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension who fails to
report the name change as required under this paragraph is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.

marriage and a certified copy of the person's birth certificate.

new text begin (b) A court shall not require a person applying for a name change to pay filing fees for
an application submitted pursuant to this section. Notwithstanding section 259.10, a court

(a) The local registrar shall
examine upon oath the parties applying for a license relative to the legality of the
contemplated civil marriage. Both parties must present proof of age to the local registrar.
If one party is unable to appear in person, the party appearing may complete the absent
applicant's information. The local registrar shall provide a copy of the civil marriage
application to the party who is unable to appear, who must verify the accuracy of the
appearing party's information in a notarized statement. The verification statement must be
accompanied by a copy of proof of age of the party. The civil marriage license must not be

registrar. If the local registrar is satisfied that there is no legal impediment to it, including
the restriction contained in section 259.13, the local registrar shall issue the license,
containing the full names of the parties before and after the civil marriage, and county and
state of residence, with the county seal attached, and make a record of the date of issuance.

the local registrar shall collect from the applicant a fee of $115 for administering the oath,
issuing, recording, and filing all papers required, and preparing and transmitting to the state
registrar of vital records the reports of civil marriage required by this section. If the license
should not be used within the period of six months due to illness or other extenuating
circumstances, it may be surrendered to the local registrar for cancellation, and in that case
a new license shall issue upon request of the parties of the original license without fee. A
local registrar who knowingly issues or signs a civil marriage license in any manner other
than as provided in this section shall pay to the parties aggrieved an amount not to exceed
$1,000.

(b) The civil marriage license fee for parties who have completed at least 12 hours of
premarital education is $40. In order to qualify for the reduced license fee, the parties must
submit at the time of applying for the civil marriage license a statement that is signed, dated,
and notarized or marked with a church seal from the person who provided the premarital
education on their letterhead confirming that it was received. The premarital education must

it may be destroyed.
