DH changing name also

Wed Apr 20, 2011 5:05 pm

Hi ladies

Wondering if you can help.

DH was born with the surname "Smith" . His dad changed his name, and the rest of the familys name to " Jones" when he was a year old or younger

All his docs, passport ect say " Jones" . He now would like to go back to the surname he was born with . Will we have trouble doing this ? "Jones" is on the marriage certificate from the church on the wedding day.

It was only his dad who changed to " Jones" . His grandfather, uncle, aunts ect are still " Smith"

He does have a change of name certificate that says he went from " Smith " to " Jones"

He will have to change his name by Deed Poll at Births Deaths and Marriages.

If you are also wanting to become a Smith, you will too. Your marriage certficate will only allow you to have Maiden, Jones or a hyphen of the two.

Deed Poll - which allows you to change your name to whatever you want, so it really doesn't matter what he was born with, or that other family members still go by that.

Is Smith on his birth certificate? If so, you can get births deaths and marriages to amend the marriage certificate to show Smith as per his birth cert.
