What is a Deed Poll?
A Deed poll has various interpretations i.e depol, depole, deedpol, dpol, a deed poll is a legal document binding only to a single person or several persons acting jointly to express an active intention. It is, strictly speaking, not a contract because it binds only one party and expresses an intention instead of a promise. The most common use is a name change through a deed of change of name (often referred to simply as a deed poll). Deeds poll are used for this purpose in countries including England Scotland, Wales, the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, New Zealand (until September 1995), Hong Kong and Singapore. In England and Wales, a deed poll can also be used to change a child's name, as long as everyone with parental responsibility for the child consents to it. This involves the child's parents executing the deed poll on the child's behalf. In some other jurisdictions, you may simply start using a new name without any formal legal process being required. The usual requirement is that the new name must be used exclusively and that the change was not made with intent to defraud. Such jurisdictions did include Australia where name change by deed poll was possible, but now is done by completing a "Change of Name form"
UK Adult Deed Poll
You can apply for a Deed Poll if you:
Are British and live in the United Kingdom as a British Citizen and are aged 16 or over and hold a Valid UK National Insurance Number, If you are British, you can be living anywhere in the world. If you live in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland you can be of any nationality.
If you are a foreign national living in the UK, we advise you to check with your country’s high commission or Embassy in London to see if a Deed Poll issued in the UK will be accepted as documentary evidence to get your passport changed to show your new name.
Countries that have a legal system based on the British legal system will usually accept a Deed Poll issued in the UK. Other countries may ask you to get your deed poll legalised.
What is the purpose of a deed poll
If you want to get all of your documents and records changed to show a new name e.g. your medical records, bank account, credit cards, passport, driving licence etc, you will be asked to produce documentary evidence of your change of name. A Deed Poll is a formal statement to prove that you have changed your name and it provides you with the necessary documentary evidence of the name by which you wish to be known.
Can I change my children’s names?
You can easily change your child’s name by Deed Poll providing those with Parental Responsibility consent to the name change. If your child is 16 or over, they must execute their own Deed Poll. If you have sole Parental Responsibility and the father has regular contact with your child you should still obtain the father’s consent to the change of name. If a parent with or without Parental Responsibility refuses consent to the change of a child’s name then a Court Order permitting the change should be obtained first. more info
