Welcome to Family Law SG. This is a site set up by W.M. Low & Partners, an established law firm since 1994. Our lawyers are in the senior category, and have over 25 years of experience.
We charge $70/- for preparation of a document for change of name, called a ‘Deed Poll’, which has to be signed before one of our solicitors. A minor, a person below 21 years of age, however, requires BOTH parents to sign the Deed Poll on his/her behalf. Both parents have to attend at our office at the same time to sign the deed poll. For cases wherein there is only one surviving parent, please provide us with a copy of the death certificate. For parents who are divorced, we require both of the natural parents of the child to attend at our office at the same time in any event.
We do not advise whether a chosen name is acceptable by the National Registration Department or otherwise.If you wish to do a Deed Poll to change your current name, please submit to us the required information in the form below and the email us the relevant documents.
Documents to be emailed over –: ( email@example.com )
For applicants above 21 years old: (a) A copy of applicant’s NRIC scanned clearly (front and back) (b) Existing and New Chinese/Tamil/Jawi Characters in Microsoft word format regardless of any type of name change.
