I just got married, how do I change my name to my husbands name and make it reflect on all my certificates?

June 06, 2019

Changing your name is not rocket science. It’s quite easy. Here is the ABC of how to change your names on all your certificates to reflect your new name. Kindly follow the steps below:

  1. First you need to swear to an Affidavit of Change of Name at the Registry of the High Court closest to you. The affidavit should say that you have changed from your old name and wish to be known by your new name, and you can show your affidavit anywhere you want to present any documentation in your old name. The affidavit is a statutory declaration recording your intention to abandon your old name and adopt a new one.
  2. You then need to announce publicly that you have made the name change. This can be done by publishing your new name in at least one recognised national daily newspaper.

After this process, your duly sworn Affidavit and Newspaper advert can be presented as proof of name change.
