Change of Name Deeds
There are a number of ways in which an individual can change their name if they want to do so. These include simply calling yourself by another name, changing your marital status, making a statutory declaration or by deed poll.
Our expert solicitors can assist you by producing a Change of Name Deed. This is a formal document that can be used as evidence of your change of name. It is a method which can provide you with certainty and help you in future applications to make changes to your passport, driving licence and other formal documents.
Generally, a change of name deed is a simple procedure which we will be happy to advise and assist you with. However, it can become complex where you want to change the name of a child if, for example, there are a number of other people who have parental responsibility of that child.
