Name and Gender Marker Change
In California, a person can change their legal name and gender marker or a minor’s name and gender by getting a court order. It is not necessary to provide any medical documentation in order to obtain a court-ordered change. Gender marker can be changed to male, female, or nonbinary.
With a court order a person can change their legal name and gender marker on government-issued identification documents:
- Driver’s license at the DMV
- Social security number with the Social Security Administration
- California birth certificate with the Office of Vital Records (out of state requirements may differ)
- US Passport – the State Department requires a letter from your medical physician on office letterhead that states that you have had “appropriate clinical treatment for gender transition.”
