Does anyone know how to change a name by deed poll? I think someone mentioned to me before that you need a solicitor to do it for you, is that true? Does anyone know how long the process takes?
no you don't need a solicitor but you do need to go to dublin to do it - see link below for details:
You have to go to the four courts to pick up the paperwork (they won't post it and you can't send somebody else in for you) then you bring it away and fill it all in (or print on it I'm not 100% sure on this) and then you bring it all back for them to put it through the system.
Alternitavely, you could get a solicitor to do the work for you.
Thanks guys might pop in on way home from work tomorrow
