Tips for Publishing a Name Change Ad in a Newspaper

Publishing a name change ad in a newspaper is a crucial step in the process of officially changing one’s name. Not only does it fulfill legal requirements in many jurisdictions, but it also serves to informing the general public of the name change. Changing of name is a significant decision and can be for various personal, legal, after marriage, divorce, spelling error or astrology reasons. Here are some tips to help you navigate this process smoothly:

First Step – Requirements for an Affidavit for Name Change :

An affidavit for a name change is a legal document that formally declares your intention to change your name and typically includes specific personal details. Below are the general steps and requirements to create an affidavit for a name change:

  1. Personal Information: Include your full current name, date of birth, place of birth, and current address.
  2. New Name: Clearly state the new name you wish to adopt.
  3. Reason for Name Change: Provide a valid reason for the name change (e.g., marriage, divorce, personal preference).
  4. Declaration: A statement declaring that you are voluntarily changing your name and that the information provided is true and correct to the best of your knowledge.
  5. No Fraudulent Intent: A statement confirming that the name change is not for fraudulent purposes or to avoid legal obligations.
  6. Signature: Your signature, along with the date of signing.
  7. Notarization: The affidavit must be signed in the presence of a notary public who will then notarize the document.
Second  Step – Crafting an Effective Name Change Ad :

The second step involves publishing a name change advertisement in the newspaper. This advertisement must appear in two newspapers: one should be a regional language or Hindi newspaper, and the other should be an English newspaper. A name change ad in a newspaper usually contains all these details listed below:

  1. Old name of the applicant
  2. New name of the applicant
  3. Father’s/Husband’s name
  4. Age of the applicant
  5. Address
  6. Number of the Affidavit for name change created prior by the applicant
  7. Date on which the affidavit was made
  8. Name Of Notary who has attested the affidavit

The name change ad placed in newspapers is mostly one big sentence which contains all the details related to your change of name. So kindly make sure that nothing important is skipped in the ad. Also double check the spellings and details mentioned in the ad.
