Can I change my Surname by Statutory Declaration to make it Double Barreled?
If you wish to change your surname to make it in to a double barreled surname, for example to add an additional surname after marriage rather than adopting your partner's surname as is, this is the same as any other Statutory Declaration change of name.
Once you have decided to change your surname to make it double barreled you will need to obtain a legally worded name change document known as a Statutory Declaration. This website allows you to create and download an officially recognised Statutory Declaration document that can be used as evidence to prove your new double barreled surname.
You must first fill in our online name change application form with your personal details including obviously your change of name. Even if you are just making a change to your surname to make it double barreled it is important that you fill in the full name you wish to be known as, including first and any middle names as well as your new double barreled surname.
You will then need to make your payment by PayPal. You will be directed to the payment screen once the form is processed. The cost of each Statutory Declaration name change document is £10. As soon as your Paypal payment is confirmed you will be directed back to this website to download your new Statutory Declaration document.
Your Statutory Declaration document must now be taken to a solicitors office in order to swear an oath on the document. There will be a small charge to do. The solicitor will then add their official company stamp to your Statutory Declaration document. Your Statutory Declaration document is now legally authorised and is the evidence of your new name. It is a good idea to ask the solicitor for several certified copies for future use.
You can now use the document to inform all of the UK Government agencies and other organisations and companies who hold your personal records to inform them of your change of name.
