 There are three steps for obtaining a legal name change in Ghana. To begin,

1. a person must possess proof, such as a birth certificate, of their current name. With this evidence the person must then take it to swear an affidavit before the Commission of Oaths, at any Ghanaian court.

2. Once this is done the individual must then go to the Office of the Judicial Secretary, where the affidavit is signed/endorsed.

3. For the third and final step the individual must have the changed names published in the Ghanaian News Paper e.g daily graphic or Ghana Publishing Company. It is only after the new name is published in a news paper that it is considered legally changed.
