Changing an Adult’s Name

Changing your name as an adult is a personal decision that may be motivated by various factors, and we understand that it requires careful consideration. Our experienced solicitors are well-versed in changing an adult’s name and can provide you with the necessary legal advice and assistance. Whether you are reverting to your maiden name after a divorce, changing your name due to marriage or gender transition, or simply seeking a fresh start, we can help guide you through the process.

Get in touch with our specialist family law team at for compassionate guidance and tailored legal solutions for Change of Name Deeds – we are here to support you every step of the way.










Changing a Child’s Name

When changing a child’s name, additional considerations come into play, and the process can be more complicated than an adult change of name deed. For children under the age of 16, a change of name deed can be undertaken if both biological parents (or anyone else with parental responsibility for the child) are willing to provide written consent.

Our family law team has extensive experience handling change of name matters for children. We understand the sensitivity of these cases and take a child-centric approach, focusing on their welfare and well-being throughout the process. It is important to note that specific agencies or organisations may require further steps. For instance, some agencies may insist on the child’s change of name deed being enrolled at court. Our family law team can guide you through the process and help with specific advice regarding the relevant agencies that need to be informed of the name change. We can also provide advice and guidance in more complex private children law matters where there is a dispute over a child’s name change. 

Whether you want to change a child’s name after a divorce or for other personal reasons, we can provide specialist legal advice and support to facilitate a smooth process.
