Changing your legal documents to reflect your identity:
Changing your name only requires a court order. No physician letter is needed.
- Changing your legal gender on your passport, social security card, and California birth certificate requires a physician letter. Other states may have different requirements for birth certificate changes.
- Changing your gender marker on your California state ID or driver license does not require a physician letter. Other states may have different requirements.
