Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I have to change my name by deed poll after marriage?
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.
Will my name change instantly after using this service?
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.
Can I use NameSwitch BEFORE my wedding?
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
How long is a Gift Card valid for?
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.
Can same sex couples use this service?
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.

My husband will be very happy!
I have been married over 2 years but have only just plucked up the courage to change my name. I was scared I would miss something out and it would take too long to pull all the necessary information together. Fortunately nameswitch has made it really simple and has taken most of the effort out of the process. Thank you! My husband will be very happy! ??Sent on 26/01/2017

Quick & Easy!
I requested my name change documents before the wedding and they arrived within 2 days. Once I was back from honeymooon I spent half an hour putting the letters in envelopes with a copy of our marriage certificate, everything was then switched over. It was really that simple. Would recommend this service to everyone!Sent on 19/09/2019
A really fantastic service
A few weeks ago I tweeted about wanting to pay someone to help with all the admin of changing my name after getting married.Sent on 09/03/2020
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!
