Transgender Name Changes by Deed Poll

Many Transgender people also choose to officially change their name, and use their new name in all correspondence from that point on. Transgender name changes are actually the same as name changes for any other reason. The Deed Poll document for a Transgender name change is identical to any other Deed Poll name change document.

If you wish to also change your title, for example from Mr to Miss, or from Mrs to Mr, you can incorporate this in to your name change document. However there is no legal requirement for an officially recognised transgender name change document just for this. You may simply begin using your new title.

You must first fill in our online name change application form with your personal details including your transgender change of name. Even if you are just making a simple change to your first name, such as changing the spelling of your name to make it gender specific, it is important that you fill in the full name you wish to be known as, including your new first, middle and surname.

You must then make your payment by PayPal. You will be directed to the PayPal payment screen once the form is processed. The cost of each Deed Poll name change document is £10 no mater what the reason for your name change, including for transgender name changes. As soon as your payment is confirmed you will be directed back to this website to download your new Deed Poll document. It is a good idea to print several copies of your Deed Poll document for future use.

Your change of name Deed Poll document must now be authorised by signing and dating in the presence of two witnesses, who should not be family members, who must then sign the document to show they have witnessed it. Your Deed Poll document is now an officially recognised proof of your new surname. Make sure you date and sign and have witnessed all of your printed copies for use in the future.

You must now use the document to inform all of the UK Government agencies, organisations and companies who hold your personal records to inform them of your new name.
