Name & Gender Change Legal Clinic

We are now offering free legal assistance to change your name and gender on your identification.

During open Name and Gender Change Legal Clinic hours, trained attorneys will provide one-on-one counseling about the gender- and name-changing process.

Helpful information about name and gender change information is available at the National Center for Transgender Equality website, including Declaration of Gender Change on Ohio Drivers License forms, birth certificate information, policies, and procedures.
