I recently got my mother's birth certificate, and we now realize that she has been using Mavis Lenora Christopher as her name, and December 18, 1936 (the day when she was registered) as her date of birth. However, her birth certificate only states her name, Mavis Lenora (no surname), and November 21, 1936 as her date of birth.
We need some legal advice on what to do, as all her legal documents, including her marriage certificate, state Mavis Lenora Christopher, and December 18, 1936.
Your mother would be required to prepare a deed poll so she can continue to use the name to which she became accustomed. Regarding her birth date, that must be corrected on all her documents, using the birth certificate received (and of course after the deed poll).
If you need any further information please contact an Attorney.
