Do you have questions about legally changing your or your child's name and/or gender designation on identity documents in Ohio?
Join us for a FREE legal clinic! Through partnership of Equality Ohio, Equitas Health, OCTOPUS LLC, and TransOhio, the Ohio Name Change Legal Clinic offers confidential virtual discussions with trained pro bono attorneys to help you navigate this often confusing process. If you are under 18 years of age, you will need a parent or guardian to complete the legal forms. Including them at your session with the Ohio Name Change Legal Clinic is not required but may be helpful.
Registration is required at least 48 hours in advance of Legal Clinic; however, we recommend completing your registration as early as 1-2 months prior. Spaces are limited and filled on a first come, first served basis. Please visit https://tinyurl.com/OHNameChange to begin the first part of your two-part registration. Your registration is not complete until you receive a confirmation email from a legal clinic coordinator, who will also provide information on how to join your scheduled session with the Ohio Name Change Legal Clinic.
This event is always free, however there are costs associated with the legal process. Funding for filing fees and administrative costs are available for those who qualify through Ohio Name Change Microgrants.
If, at any point, you experience issues accessing the registration form, please email email@example.com, and the legal clinic coordinator will reach out to find an accessible alternative.
