Registering a Change of Name

In the state of Queensland you can legally change your name as long as you are not doing so for criminal purposes such as committing fraud.

The Queensland Justice Department can only change the name of people born:

* in Queensland
* overseas who have resided in Queensland for the past 12 months.

If you were born in Australia, but outside Queensland, you can download the correct application form through their links.
