Assistance with updating Name,
Gender Marker, and Legal Documents!

Our “Update!” program is here to assist Trans and Nonbinary people with updating their names, gender markers, and legal documents! Currently, we offer start-to-finish assistance for legal Name Changes and on-demand assistance with legal document updates (like Social Security, Drivers License, State ID, Birth Certificate, and Passport).

We provide guidance, advocacy, legal assistance, and financial support (if needed). These programs are provided in-office or virtually, and support is on a “first come, first serve” basis.

To be eligible, you must:

  1. Be a Trans or Nonbinary person
    (Parents or guardians of a Trans or Nonbinary minor, or someone assisting a Trans or Nonbinary person, may fill out this application on their behalf.)
  2. Live in KENT COUNTY, MI.
    (For Name Changes, you will need to have lived in Kent County for one year or longer. You may still access our program/information if you have lived in Kent County for less than one year, but will be unable to submit your initial paperwork to the court until your one-year mark.)

Applicant info will be kept confidential.


Because these processes are sequential, fill out only one application below at this time.

That is: 
1. If you are seeking a Name Change, fill out only the Name Change application. You may request Legal Document assistance after your Name Change is complete. 
2. I
f you have already completed your Name Change, fill out the Legal Document application. 

Please direct any questions or concerns to <Update@GRTransFoundation.org>.
