App Overview

CHANGE MY NAME provides an easy 10-step guide to changing your name within Australia. This app features links to relevant information, forms and documents required for changing your name.

Lets' look at WHY someone might decide to change their name...

1. Change My Name after marriage - to take their partners name. This is a fairly common practice here in Australia. Change My Name guides you through all the stages of changing your name from aquiring your Wedding Certificate from the Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages in your state right through to a reminder to change your name on your library card.

2. Change My Name after divorce - to revert back to your maiden name. Change of name is made simple and painless with Change My Name.

3. I'm new to Australia and currently only have a first name - a first and surname is required in Australia when filling in paperwork for many industries of employment ie: health/aged care industry.

4. Same-sex couple unable to be married in Australia (yet!) - to "solidify the family unit" perhaps double-barrelling the surnames or even "merge" the two surnames. Marriage equality may not have hit our country yet but you, your partner and your children can all share the same surname!
