Family & Relationships

Our Family team are approachable and friendly solicitors who will deal with your requirements in a sensitive manner. From children disputes to relationship agreements and separation, we’ll ensure the legal process is smooth and manageable for everyone involved.


You can change your name at any time and to pretty much anything, provided you do not intend to deceive or defraud another person. Just simply start using the new name. You can change your forename or surname, add names or rearrange your existing names.

Although there is no formal legal process to change a name, you will need evidence that your name change is legitimate and permanent for many organisations such as banks, the DVLA, the Passport Office… We can advise you on the appropriate steps to take and assist in the drafting and registration of these documents.

Changing the name of your child requires the agreement of all parties (usually the parents) with Parental Responsibility or an Order of the Court. It is always best to seek legal advice when you are considering changing the name of your child. Our Family Law Teams in Bristol and London can help with this.
