Divorce & Separation Name Change

Getting your name back just got a whole lot easier

How do I change names after divorce or separation?

It's easier than you think! You can start using your prior name now. As there is no 'registration' or legal change to your name on marriage, you can go back to your former name whenever you want, regardless of your marital status. You just need to get all your records updated.

What documents do I need?

All you need to do is prove the link between your married and former names. Your married name was only an assumed name, so you never lost the right to be known by your prior name.
