Re-registering my son


1 to 6 of 6 posts


I went for a coffee with one of my bridesmaids yesterday and we got talking about the wedding 

She happen to mention that I’d have to get my sons birth certificate redone because I’d be changing my name to my married one... 

I was a bit confused by this, because on my birth certificate it has my mums maiden name and my fathers name (they were never married and split when I was 2) 

Could I leave my sons birth certificate as it is? 


You don’t need to change his birth certificate. My daughters birth certificates stayed as it was after I got married to someone not her dad.


You only need to re register if you’re marrying your son’s father. 


Hi Laura, my little boy has just turned two and when me & his father went to register him we were told if we ever marry then you need to come back and re register  him. i have never understood why tbh ๐Ÿคจ 


Thanks everyone this is a big help! 

I am marrying my sons father so we will have to re register him ๐Ÿ˜Š
