CHILDREN

An adult who has parental responsibility for a child is free to change the child’s name on the child’s behalf. If more than one person has parental responsibility for the child, each person who has such parental responsibility must agree the change of name in writing.

An adult is free to:

  • change the child’s name
  • give the child new names
  • delete the child’s old names

There is no definite formal way in which a name should be changed but there are a number of ways in which a change of name can be evidenced.

At Eric Robinson Solicitors we can prepare change of name deeds for adults wishing to change a child’s name. We will firstly need the written consent of everybody with parental responsibility. Secondly we will need the adult completing the change of name deed to sign a declaration confirming that they take responsibility for the written consent that they have provided. Our fixed fee for this is £150.00 including VAT.

PROCESS

We will prepare the deed for you, meet with you to explain the deed, witness you sign the deed and return the original deed plus certified copies to you for your future use.

Payment will be required when the appointment is made as will two forms of identification.
