Did you know that in the United Kingdom you can change your name or your child’s name* at any time provided it is not to deceive or defraud another person.

There are many reasons why you may wish to change your name or that of your child, such as where you are cohabiting and wish to take your partner’s surname, the unfortunate breakdown of a relationship or because you simply wish to be known by another name. Whatever the reason, Thursfields solicitors are here to advise and assist you.

To officially change your name, you will need an official document, such as a deed poll or statutory declaration. This will enable you to update your passport, driving license, bank accounts, and other official records in your new name. Certain documents cannot be changed such as Birth, Marriage or Decree Absolute certificates.

Thursfields offer a quick, straight forward and no hassle service, providing you with the comfort that your name has been changed correctly and documents drafted by experienced, expert solicitors.

To enquire, please call Charlotte on 01562 512428

*To change your child’s name, if they are under 18, you will need consent from all with parental responsibility or a Court order.
