Relatively new rules regarding full and proper identification of people for many reasons, especially for those entering into legal transactions, is creating an industry of its own.  We are finding some people coming to us are discovering, for the first time, that the name they have used virtually all of their life and/or birth date is not correct.

If you do not have at least your Birth Certificate (in English), Driver’s Licence and government issued documentary evidence of any change to your name (not the Certificate of Marriage issued on the day you were married), we strongly advise that you see a solicitor for advice on Verification of Identification (VOI) BEFORE you need it.
