Legal transition: a visual how-to guide to changing your legal name or sex designation in New Brunswick

So, you’ve made the decision to change your legal documents to reflect your chosen name and gender identity. Congrats for taking this step!

Now, there’s a legal process you will need to follow in order to make this real. Service New Brunswick (SNB) offers all the information and forms required, but some of us like visuals and appreciate a simplified, step-by-step guide to walk you through the process.

Thinking about that, Chroma has created two visual and interactive tools: “How to Legally Change Your Sex Designation in New Brunswick” and “How to Legally Change Your Name in New Brunswick”, so you can understand at a glance a process that can seem dauntingly complex.
