Letters of consent

Once you have executed a deed poll on your child's behalf you must inform everyone (school, doctor, bank, etc) of the change of name. Most organisations will require a letter signed by everyone with parental responsibility confirming that they consent to the change of name. You can use the templates on this page to compose your letter of consent.



Letter for parent with sole responsibility

This letter is to be used when only one person has parental responsibility for the child whose name is being changed.
