Do it Yourself

In this section are guides for updating your legal identity documents yourself.

If you are interested in updating your legal identity documents you don't need to update them nor do you need to update them in any particular order. 

The cheapest order of updating your identity documents is name change first, followed by other documents, because that way you will not need to re-update the documents with a new name. A lot of people do birth certificates last because the law requires a particular medical standard be reached.

If you are having trouble with banks or other organisations that require certain identity documents - you might want to consider updating your passport first - it is widely accepted as strong proof of identity and it is easy to change the gender marker to F, M or X.
