California Superior Court - Name & Gender Change Forms
Download the forms needed to generate a petition to change your name and/or gender marker for the California Supreme Court. These forms will work for most counties in California. San Bernardino requires an extra form, which is also included in the packet. (All forms are available only in English.)
You may also take advantage of California Superior Court's self-help system by clicking here. (Name changes only, not gender marker.)
Find a Gender Surgeon
Trans and nonbinary patients may turn to us for advice when seeking a surgeon to perform their gender-affirming procedures. We are not able to recommend specific surgeons, only to provide options depending on their insurance and the procedures they are seeking. We cannot state preferences or share opinions about a particular provider, whether good or bad. However, there are a number of websites that have collected the data so that patients can do their own research. On this page, you'll find some of the best-known resources for finding a gender surgeon in the United States.
