Who can apply for a Deed Poll?

Transform Your Identity with Deed Poll UK

Typically, any adult can apply for a deed poll to legally change their name. Minors under the age of 18 can also have their names changed, but this would require the consent and application by those with parental responsibility. The exact requirements may vary by jurisdiction, but generally, adults are free to apply for a deed poll on their own behalf, whereas for minors, the application must be made by parents or legal guardians.

Our intuitive online service handles everything from start to finish, minimising hassle so you can focus on embracing your new name. No morequeues or confusing paperwork – just a few clicks and our convenient app takes care of the rest.

**Younger Family Members Require Guardian Consent**

For children under 16, a Child Deed Poll needs consent from all guardians with parental responsibility. This ensures the name change protects their welfare. Once approved, we’ll provide the sealed Deed Poll for updating their identity documents.

We’re here to advise parents on this straightforward process from start to finish.

**Special Circumstances**

Whilst many newlyweds adopt their partner’s last name without a deed poll, any other changes do need official recognition. We’re ready to help you gain it through
