Parental consent requirements

The first step in legally changing a child's name is to obtain consent from everyone with parental responsibility for the child. This means that you should have a letter signed by everyone with parental responsibility stating that they consent to the name change taking place.

When sending a child's deed poll to organisations such as their school, doctor, bank and the passport service you will be required to prove that everyone with parental responsibility for the child has consented to the change of name before they will update their records. You can satisfy this requirement by presenting your letter of consent signed by everyone with parental responsibility for the child.
