Our team of lawyers at Circular Law Chambers have assisted clients in their name change in Singapore by executing a Deed Poll, as well as advised clients on Legacy Planning including Power of Attorney and/or Lasting Power of Attorney.
To change your name in Singapore, we will be able to assist in preparing a Deed Poll which is a legal document that declares your new name and executed in the presence of a lawyer. There are many reasons for a change in name, such as when you get married and wish to adopt your spouse’s last name, to add an English name, to change your Chinese or Tamil characters, to delete or remove your hanyinpinyin name or simply for auspicious reasons.
In the realm of Legacy Planning, it is vital to make early arrangements to protect your interests, should you become mentally incapacitated one day. A Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) is a legal document that allows a person (“Donor”) to appoint one or more persons to act on their behalf and to make decisions relating to the Donor’s personal welfare matters, property and other matters in the event that the Donor loses his mental capacity one day. A Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal document executed by a person who appoint another person to act on his behalf in certain matter such as a sale or purchase of a property.
