Do-It-Yourself Gender Marker & Name Change Guide

The Name and Gender Change guides below provide an outline for adult and minor Ohio residents to change their name and/or gender marker on identity documents and other records. The process varies from county to county, so we have included additional guides based on your county of residence.

Keep in mind that each person may have unique needs or goals that require a different approach, but the most common steps to name and gender marker change are below. This can be a daunting process, and we are happy to help guide you through the name and gender change steps.

We encourage you to attend our free Name & Gender Change Legal Clinics to discuss your specific situation and goals with a trained attorney.
