Selecting your deed poll

You can use the deed poll selection tool above to select the deed poll pack right for you. Take care to select the correct pack if applying to change a child's name as the deed poll change of name process for a child is slightly different than it is for an adult.

Deed Poll To
Change A Name

The most common use for a deed poll is to change a name. They can be used to change the forename, middle name or last name, some people choose to change their entire name with a deed poll declaration.

The deed is a legal document, that once signed in the presence of a witness (executed) completes the official change of name process. The only remaining step is for the applicant to inform agencies such as HM Passport Office and the DVLA by presenting the deed poll.

Changing your name by deed poll takes around 2 days. The timeframe to receive your new documents from the Government will vary depending on how soon after the change of name you inform them.

Deed Poll To
Change A Title

In much the same way that a deed poll change of name declaration can be used to officially change your name, a deed poll can be used to change your social title.

For example, many people choose to reassume the title Ms or Miss during the divorce process. 

People are also increasingly deciding to take genderless titles such as Mx, in place of MR or Miss. A deed poll declaration can help you to officially take a new title and have your records and identity documents changed to reflect this.

You can find more information on changing your title by taking a look at our Changing Your Title page.

Deed Poll To
Change A Gender

A combination of a deed poll change of name and a title change is often used to assume a new gender. Both a title change and a name change can be completed on the same deed poll application.

Many people choose to take genderless titles such as Mx, in place of the traditional Mr or Miss.

It is important to note however, that if you have  been issued with a Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC) you wont need a deed poll declaration to change your name or social title.

You can only change the gender on your passport with a Gender Recognition Certificate.
