Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. Firstly, I need to ask some initial questions to determine the legal position.
What reason have they provided for wanting to do this and how long have you worked there for?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. It is not unreasonable for the employer to ask to see some formal proof of your name change because they have to keep accurate records and for official thinks like a name, they would need to see official confirmation/evidence. If the marriage certificate is the only thing you have which shows you how the name was changed, then you may eventually have to supply that to them as evidence. However, if you have something else, like a new passport or a deed poll change of name, then you can use these instead, Just be aware that they will be able to ask for formal proof though.
