Change of Name

If you wish to change some or all of your name for example after a divorce then this can easily be done by way of a change of name deed provided it is not for any fraudulent or other illegal reason.

If you wish to change the names of your children then you would usually require the father’s permission. However it is possible in certain circumstances to change the childrens’ names without the father’s permission or alternatively you can apply to the court for an order allowing you to do so.

We offer fixed fees to prepare a change of name deed for yourself or your children. Contact our Family Law department and we can provide the most appropriate advice to you in your particular circumstances.
