Change of Name


If you decide to change your name, Barker Booth & Eastwood can help you to do this legally and properly.

People change their name for a variety of reasons. What the law thinks of this is simple. A name change is acceptable unless it seeks to defraud or has some criminal benefit. Simply asking others to call you by your new name could work. A Statutory Declaration is more sensible as other parties and authorities accept more readily a legal document than just your word.

Barker Booth & Eastwood can help you change your name simply and easily. A Change of Name Deed is drawn up by one of our expert Lawyers and the proper procedure carried out to ensure its legal status. If there are any associated matters to the Change of Name Deed, we can discuss this at the time. This requires certain contents but we explain this simply, using plain English.
