A change of name deed poll is used to provide an official document which states you have changed your name. After marriage, you can begin using your partners surname without officially having it changed. However, having a deed poll will allow you to change official documents such as your driver’s license and passport.
A changing name deed poll process takes approximately two weeks and is legally binding in the United Kingdom. There are many reasons people change their name and it is important to know when a deed poll is required. For legal advice on changing your name and whether you require a deed poll, please contact our family law solicitors who will be happy to assist you.
