    It will probably differ from country to country, in the UK it is done through a legal process by deed poll.

    Varies by country and by state.  In the US, most original birth certificates have a form on the back which you can use to submit changes. You then submit the change following the directions.   Depending on the change, you may need to request a court order. To do so you file paperwork, normally go before a judge, and the judge grants or denies the change.

    Here is information on how it works in Pennsylvania. http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal/se … tes/612936
