Rearranging current names

Some people like their names but want to arrange them in a different order. This could be because of pronunciation and spelling difficulties or simply due to personal preference.

For example, a surname and a middle name could change places in order for somebody to have a preferred surname, without losing the original one altogether. Likewise one can rearrange one's forenames in whatever way is desired. It is also possible to simply alter the spelling of current names.

In order to make any of these changes official a Deed Poll must be applied for. Upon receiving the Deed Poll document it must be signed, dated and this signing must be witnessed. Once complete, the Deed Poll, or certified copies of the document, can be sent out to relevant departments so that their records can be updated to show the new name.

What Our Clients Say...

My 17 year old daughter wanted to change her name by Deed Poll to my maiden name and I was put off as had heard that it was a complicated process. I researched this on the internet and came across UKDP. I rang and a lovely young lady explained what my daughter needed to do and that I could do it over the phone for her as long as she signed the Deed Poll in front of a witness.

Everything arrived in the post the next day and the information pack was invaluable as all my daughter had to do was type out the template letters to various organisations.

I highly recommend UKDP to anyone wishing to change their name as they have made something I thought to be very complicated to the easiest thing in the world.
