About a Name Change and a Sex Change above. Pay attention to the limitations in both sections.
Get your proof ready. You will need to fill out and file court forms in Step 2. Before that, get the following ready:
- evidence of your medical history, care or treatment related to your transition (like a letter signed by a licensed medical provider that says you experience clinically significant distress because of the current sex on your birth certificate)
- proof that you have outwardly expressed as the sex sought in your paperwork for the past 6 months, and
- proof that the change you are asking for is a true and an important part of your identity.
Get a certification from the Department of Corrections. Fill out page 1 of this form (leave page 2 blank):
Send the form to the Offender Registration Program:
- Scan a PDF of the form and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Wait. It could take some time for the Offender Registration Program to complete the form and return it to you.
Once you receive the completed form and have all of your evidence ready, go to Step 2 of "Both a Name Change and a Sex Change" below.
If you don't want to send the form via email, send a paper copy to the Offender Registry Program via US mail. Read page 3 of the form for instructions.
