How to Get a Name Change After Marriage

husband surname deed poll

Contrary to popular belief, a woman’s surname does not automatically change to her husband’s surname upon marriage.  A marriage certificate simply records the names of the couple who are marrying. After your marriage, it is your own personal choice what you want your surname to be.
If you decide to follow the British tradition, you can take your husband’s surname, or decide to adopt a double-barrelled surname. The two elements of the new surname can be linked by a hyphen or kept separate e.g. Bennet-Darcy or Bennet Darcy.

In both cases, one of the easiest way to prove that you committed yourself to using your new name for all purposes (which will give you the right to change your surname on your Passport, Driving Licence, Bank Account, etc.) is to execute a Deed Poll.

Unmarried women can choose to adopt their partner’s surname, too. In fact, across the UK, people can change their name through a Deed Poll at any time, provided they do not intend to deceive or defraud.

A Deed of Change of Name (more commonly known as a Deed Poll) is a written legal document, not a simple certificate. At Baraka UK Deed Poll, we deliver a proven and trusted service to make sure your Deed Poll is delivered legally and professionally, carrying our official seal, saving you time and money. By using our service, legally changing your name by Deed Poll is easy, straight forward and stress-free.

Baraka UK Deed Poll, once signed by yourself and co-signed by your witness, is a documentary evidence that you have changed your name and that you are legally binding yourself to using your new name. Therefore, it will enable you to apply for a new passport and driving licence, and change your name on your bank account and all other records. A Deed Poll drafted by Baraka UK Deed Poll is an English legal document, and is recognised by all UK Government Departments and UK companies and organisations.


Join the thousands who have already applied for a Deed Poll to change their name. Fill in our Application Form and securely pay online. Your Deed Poll will be posted to your address within 24 hours, by recorded delivery, free of charge.

If you still have any question, we will be happy to help you. Please contact us today.
