  13. Name change process

  15. In the state I live in, you also have to go through the name change process. It is cheaper and less paperwork because you just got married, though. If you get married or adopted, you can change your name just with some paperwork and a small fee, I believe (it's been awhile). If for any other reason, you have to go through a lot of other stuff, some class or something. My friend just got divorced though, and her name went automatically back to her maiden name when the divorce went through. I did have to go to the social security office with my marriage license and get a new card with my new name on it before it was legally my name.

  20. It is all much simpler in England. Either a marriage certificate (if you wish, but only if you wish) or a statutory declaration of name change will do it. To make a statutory declaration of name change, you just write something like the following, take it to a solicitor, and make the declaration. He stamps the paper and that's it. It costs five pounds. Piece of cake.

  22. Statutory Declaration of Name Change
  23.  
  24. I, [your new name], of [your address]
  25.  
  26. DO SOLEMNLY AND SINCERELY DECLARE as follows:
  27.  
  28. I absolutely and entirely renounce, relinquish and abandon the use of my former name of [your old name], and assume, adopt and determine to take and use the name of [your new name] in substitution of my former name.
  29.  
  30. I shall at all times hereafter in all records, deeds and documents and other writings, and in all actions, proceedings, as well as in all dealings and transactions on all occasions whatsoever use and subscribe the said name of [your new name] as my name in substitution for my former name of [your old name] so relinquished as aforesaid to the intent that I may hereafter be called, known or distinguished not by my former name of [your old name] but by my name of [your new name] only.
  31.  
  32. I authorise and require all persons at all times to designate, describe and address me by the adopted name of [your new name], and I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing the same to be true and by virtue of the provisions of the Statutory Declarations Act 1835.
