An essential, hassle free service for all newlyweds who are changing their name.
A few weeks ago I tweeted about wanting to pay someone to help with all the admin of changing my name after getting married.
There are almost 30 organisations I need to inform and, hating life admin as I do, just thinking about it was bringing me out in cold sweats.
Luckily, Name Switch replied to my tweet offering their services, and I cannot recommend them enough.
I’ve now got template letters to send to all the relevant organisations, and I know which ones I’ll need to see in person and what I’ll need to take with me when I do.
A really, really fantastic service.
Thank you Name Switch!
Really useful service. Not only did they send standard letters to send to each company I needed to change my name with, but most helpful were the accompanying instructions telling me the procedure for changing my name with each company, the documents they would accept, address to send it to etc. Even if I could have done the letters myself this helpful explanatory document saved loads of time which otherwise I would need to have spent checking each company’s website for their specific name change procedure. Staff also friendly and service very quick. Thank you!
In general, if you are taking a partners name after marriage it is not necessary to change your name officially by deed poll.
A deed poll is a legal document that proves a change of name. It is generally used when people want to change any part, add or remove names and hyphens, or spelling.
No. Our smart automation will populate your personalised letters, forms and instructions ready for download. It’s then over to you to sign & send on to the companies, in whichever order makes sense to you. The time it takes to affect the name change depends on the individual company and sometimes the season – IE passports will take longer during the summer months.
Yes ! NameSwitch allows you to set an ''''effective date'''' in the future. Ideal for the super organised who wants everything set to go straight after D Day ! PLEASE NOTE that companies will need to receive official documentation i.e. Marriage Certificate/Decree Absolute/Deed Poll to affect the name change
eGift Cards can be redeemed up to 12 months after the purchase date - should you need it for longer we will be happy to assist.
Yes of course! Many gay couples choose to combine their names after marriage to become double-barrelled - some create a totally new name that is personal to them and their heritage. This will normally require a deed poll change in the first instance. Both parties then will need to notify companies and government bodies of their change in name - NameSwitch is ready and waiting to help.
