Name & Gender Change Guide

Step 1 - Free Consultation

Starting your name and gender change process is easy – just reach out to us. Whether by call, text, or email, we offer a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation. In this conversation, we'll explore your specific needs, answer any questions, and outline the necessary documents and steps for your legal name change and gender change in more detail. Following our chat, we'll help you schedule your first appointment to start the legal process.

Step 2 - Appointment with Attorney

We see clients Monday-Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at our conveniently located office. During the appointment, you will discuss your legal name and gender change with the attorney, who will create all necessary legal documents. At the end of your appointment, you will sign the documents with our on-site notary and provide payment. After the appointment, your attorney will file the documents and usher your legal name and gender change through the District Court.

Step 3 - Healthcare Provider Recommendations

Two of the most important documents required for your gender-affirming legal name change are letters from your doctor and mental health care provider, such as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) or Psychiatrist. They will need to confirm that you are under their care for the treatment of gender dysphoria and that a name and gender change is necessary for your treatment. During your appointment with the attorney, you will be counseled on appropriate language that should be included in this letter.

Step 4 - Court Hearing

Once your attorney has filed the necessary court documents, you and your attorney will attend a legal name and gender change hearing to present your case to the judge.* You will be sworn in and the attorney will guide you through questions about your case. Your attorney will present any necessary arguments to further your case before the judge.

*Please Note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, an in-person court appearance will likely not be necessary. Most court proceedings are conducted over Zoom.

Step 5 - Updating Records

Once the court grants your legal name and gender change, your attorney will obtain and provide certified copies of your court order. Your attorney will also provide you with instructions and all documentation necessary for updating your name and gender on your birth certificate, social security card, driver’s license, passport, and other government identity documents, as necessary.

Reasons For a Gender-Affirming Legal Name & Gender Change

We understand that every person seeking a gender-affirming legal name and gender change has a unique and deeply personal reason for doing so. This change can be a crucial part of affirming your identity and it ensures that your legal identity matches your lived experience. Consistency between your identification documents and gender identity reduces the risk of discrimination and harassment in employment, healthcare, education, and personal life, an experience which is all too common in the transgender community. Whatever your reason may be, we are here to ease and expedite this important step in your journey.
