ExH and I separated in April, things are very amicable and we're still good friends so neither of us are in a massive hurry to divorce. I however want to change back to my maiden name as I still get the little stabbing pain in my heart when having to use my married name I want to change by deed poll, has anyone else here done so and can you recommend a reputable way to get it done? Also any idea on cost, I've been told everything from free up to £50!! TIA x
I did it for nothing. I typed it professionally on quality legal paper, had it witnessed by a professional. The bank, and all the other bodies involved accepted the declaration. This was many years ago and I copied it out for a friend more recently. Have a google around to see if there are any guide lines but after all you are only reverting to your given name.
