We charge a very competitive rate of £125 plus VAT to process your Change of Name Deed. The fee is due at your very first meeting with Ramsdens Solicitors and covers the cost of drafting the deed, your copies of the deed, and having it witnessed.
Our experienced and knowledgeable team make changing your name a quick and painless process. The process includes:
Our team can also prepare Deeds to change a child's name. Unlike other Change of Name Deeds, all people with parental responsibility must consent to their child’s change of name.
If all persons with parental responsibility do not consent, it will be necessary to make an Application to the court for a Specific Issue Order to change the child's name. The court will grant this if they feel that it is in the child's best interests for the name to be change.
If the court grants an order, the court order can be provided as evidence that the child's name has been changed.
