Solicitors for Changing Your Name

Changing your name or your child’s name is often a straightforward process, but having an expert to oversee the paperwork can manage the burdensome administration and ensure you have a legally correct document to use for all identity purposes going forward. At JCP Solicitors, we can assist with this for £250 + VAT in straightforward cases, and on our hourly rate service for more complex situations.

Change of name deeds for children under 16 can be undertaken using our fixed fee service, if both biological parents (and anyone else with parental responsibility for the child) are prepared to consent to this in writing. If both parents do not consent, we can provide you with a transparent quotation of how long this will take and our hourly rates.

Specific advice should be taken from any agency that you need to contact to advise them of a name change as they may have their own specific requirements. For example, some agencies may require that the child’s change of name deed should be enrolled at court. In these situations, the change of name service can be more complicated than an adult Change of Name Deed, and you would need to engage our hourly rate service.

Our team would be delighted to talk through your circumstances and let you know which option is suited to your requirements.
