Step 1: Fill out the first form
Step 2: Fill out the second form
Step 3: Fill out the third form
Step 4: Fill out the fourth form
Step 5: Have your doctor fill out this form
Next you will have to take the form “NCC-210” (AKA “Declaration of Physician – Attachment to Petition”) to a licensed physician. This can be your general doctor, endocrinologist, clinic physician, etc. so long as they are a licensed physician. Have them fill out and sign the form. You can find this form here or you can pick it up at your nearest courthouse.
Step 6: Make copies
Make sure you make copies of all your forms for your personal records. Keep them separate from the originals. They will be the ones you will file with the courts.
Step 7: File your forms
Gather together all of the forms mentioned above and have them filed at the courthouse closest to your listed residence. You may be asked to pay a fee. If you are not able to afford it, request a fee waiver and fill it out.
Step 8: Go to your court date
Be sure to take the copies of all your forms you made with you as well as the form “NCC-230” (AKA “Decree Changing Name and Gender”). If the judge approves your change of name and gender they will sign NCC-230 and you will then use that form to change your state ID, driver’s license, passport, social security, bank account, etc.
