Gender Change Forms

You may not need all of these forms. Or you may need more forms. If you are not sure which forms to use, talk to a lawyer. Click for help finding a lawyer. You can also ask your court’s self-help center if they provide help with gender changes.

NOTE: All California courts use the same basic set of forms. But some courts have special, local forms, too. To see if you will need any special, local forms, contact your court clerk or check your court’s website. The forms may be posted on their site. If not, the site will list the address and phone number of your local courthouse.
