Why Change Your Name?

There are various reasons why individuals choose to change their names. Some common reasons include:

Marriage: Many individuals choose to take their spouse’s last name upon marriage, and this often involves changing their legal name.

Divorce: After a divorce, some people decide to revert to their previous name, which may have been their maiden name.

Personal Preference: You have the right to change your name at any time for personal reasons, as long as it is not for fraudulent purposes.

Cultural or Religious Reasons: Some individuals change their names to align with their cultural or religious beliefs.

Gender Transition: As part of a gender transition, some individuals may change their name to reflect their true gender identity.

Legal Process for Changing Your Name

Changing your name legally requires you to go through a specific process to ensure that the change is recognised by government authorities, financial institutions, and other organisations. Our legal team will provide assistance with the following steps:

1. Deed Poll:

A Deed Poll is a legal document that proves a change of name. It is a written statement that you no longer wish to be known by your former name and that you will exclusively use your new name for all purposes. Our solicitors can assist you in preparing a Deed Poll.

2. Statutory Declaration:

A Statutory Declaration is another legal document that can be used to change your name. It involves making a solemn declaration before a Commissioner for Oaths or a Notary Public. Our authorised Commissioners of Oaths can assist with this process.

3. Notification:

Once you have legally changed your name, you will need to notify various institutions and organisations, including government agencies, banks, employers, and more. Our legal team can provide guidance on who to notify and how to update your records.

4. Updating Official Documents:

You will also need to update your official documents, such as your passport, driver’s licence, and any other identification cards. Our solicitors can advise you on the necessary steps for updating these documents.
