Judge Samuel McVey granted the request, which primarily keeps the documents from being public.

Here’s what we have unearthed. The petition was filed in August. It takes anywhere from one to two months for approval. In Utah, a hearing must take place before the change is granted. If Michael wanted to legally change his name without his parents’ approval, he had to wait until he turned 18.

A private memorial service for Michael will take place in Utah on Monday. Marie will return to the Las Vegas stage with her famous brother Donny the following day.
