Making an Affidavit of Name Change

  • What is an Affidavit of Name Change?

    You may not be James Bond, but you may use names or aliases other than your legal name. An Affidavit of Name Change can help you prove you're who you say when you've changed your name, but haven't made it official. If you have been using more than one name, create Affidavit of Name Change to verify your identity.


    Use the Affidavit of Name Change document if:

    • You have changed your name in the past and now a party you are dealing with wants assurances that the name change is proper and there is no chance of impropriety.

    If you need to apply for a passport, visa or a job, you'll need to verify your citizenship. An Affidavit of Name Change is evidence of your identity. It will work for anyone who has used a name that has not been changed officially by a court or changed through marriage. For example, you can use this document if you have recently been married, divorced or formally changed your name, but need additional verification of your name change. Another person, preferably a blood-relative, who has personal knowledge of you using both your legal name and your chosen name, will fill out this Affidavit.

    Other names for this document: Affidavit of One and the Same, Affidavit of Same Name, Change of Name Affidavit
