PROOF OF NAME CHANGE – The legal name as it appears on the Arizona Department of Real Estate License should
reflect the legal name on the document submitted as Proof of Legal Residency.
PROOF OF LEGAL PRESENCE - The 2008 Legislature enacted A.R.S. §41-1080 which requires licensing agencies,
including the Department of Real Estate (ADRE), to obtain proof of the license applicant’s legal presence in the United
States prior to issuing, renewing, or making a change to a license.
NICKNAME ADDITION – A licensee may use any derivative of the applicant's first name or middle name or a nickname that
is regularly used for advertising purposes only (A.R.S. 32-2123). The Department considers a nickname to be a familiar

nickname or derivative of ones legal name should not be used when signing legal documents.
