Deed Poll on Change of Name for an Individual (Minor). This Deed Poll needs to be signed in the presence of a solicitor or a notary public.
A deed poll is required in order to acquire a name change. Whereby the undersigned hereby absolutely renounces and abandons the former name, and in lieu thereof do assume from the date hereof the name set out ('Newly Assumed Name').
In this case, a minor wishes to change his or her official name. Parental consent will be necessary as a minor does not have full legal capacity.
This document should be carefully read by the individual undersigning the deed poll. The Newly Assumed Name and Former Name should be clearly stated in the Deed Poll, in order to pursue a name change for an individual. The Deed Poll also needs to be signed in the presence of a solicitor or a notary public.
