If you want to change your name:-

We will prepare a Change of Name Deed that includes the following important declarations:

• You will abandon the use of your previous name
• You will use your new name at all times from the date of signing the deed
• You will relinquish the use of your previous name in all documents and will use your new name going forward

We charge a very competitive rate of £100 plus VAT. The fee is due upfront and covers the cost of preparing the deed and providing you with copies.

If you want to change your child’s name:-

Unlike other change of name deeds, to formally change the name of a child, all persons with parental responsibility for that child must consent to the change of name. If their consent cannot be obtained, you would need to make an application to the court for a Specific Issue Order. We will charge a very competitive rate of £120 plus VAT if all persons with parental responsibility consent to the change of name. The fee is payable upfront and covers the cost of preparing the deed and seeking all persons consent to the change before providing you with copies.
