Solicitors for Changing Your Name

Changing your name can seem simple enough but can be a frustrating process if not undertaken correctly. At JCP Solicitors we have helped many adults legally change their name through the preparation of a simple legal document called a Change of Name Deed. If you are looking to change your name then we can prepare a change of name deed for you that should be accepted at all major organisations, however specific advice should be taken from any agency that you need to contact to advise of a name change as they may have their own specific requirements.

For a basic adult change of name deed, our fixed price is £200 plus VAT.

Change of name deeds for children under 16 can also be undertaken if both biological parents (and anyone else with parental responsibility for the child) are prepared to consent to this in writing. Again, 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. As these can be more complicated than an adult Change of Name Deed, we are unable to offer a fixed price to cover all scenarios. Costs will start at £200 +VAT and we will provide you with an accurate quotation tailored to your circumstances at the outset of your matter to allow you to budget effectively.

Changing your name in a straightforward situation can often be done without the guidance of a Solicitor. A helpful guide can be found here. This provides all necessary guidance and paperwork required to implement a change of name for both adults and children. It also gives a step-by-step guide on how to action a change of name yourself and what the relevant fees are if enrolled at court.
