Getting a birth certificate updated

As a general rule you can not get the name on a child's birth certificate changed because a birth certificate is considered a historical document, not proof of identity, and therefore only records the facts as they were at the time. With that said there are a few circumstances where you can get a birth certificate changed so it is worth reading the article Can a birth certificate be updated? just to make sure.

If you have any doubts as to whether you will be able to get your child's birth certificate updated following their change of name please do not hesitate to contact us on 0800 043 4161 or 0207 043 4161.
