Although technically a Deed Poll is an English legal document, the Lawpack Deed Poll Kit is recognised by all government departments, organisations and companies throughout the UK.
A Deed Poll can be used by any British citizen aged 16 years or over.
A Deed Poll can also be used by anyone, of any nationality, living in the UK.
If you are a foreign national living in the UK, you should ask your embassy if a Deed Poll is acceptable to change the name on your passport. Countries that have a similar legal system will also usually accept a UK Deed Poll.
