Making a change swiftly and smoothly

A change in circumstance may prompt a desire to change your name. You may wish to revert to your previous name after a divorce; you may wish to change your given name; or you may wish your child to adopt the surname of a new spouse.

In most cases, you can change your name on the same day you see us, and the change can be recognised legally in the UK. Our expert team will identify and swiftly draft the necessary paperwork, most often  a Change of Name Deed.

We specialise in navigating complexity and can guide you through challenging situations involving children where written consent may be required from both biological parents who are no longer together. Your change of name solicitor will always try and seek a resolution outside of court, but if the name change is contested, we will be at your side to support you robustly through any court proceedings.
