Change of Name Solicitors
The law relating to a change of name
There may be a variety of reasons for wanting to change your name, from family disputes, divorce or more personal reasons. What the law thinks of this is very simple. A name change is acceptable unless it seeks to defraud or has some criminal benefit.
You could simply ask people to call you by your new name without going through the legal process. However, you should bear in mind that authorities and other organisation more readily accept a legal document than just your word. Therefore, a deed poll or statutory declaration is the more sensible option if you wish to avoid future problems.
