Changing ID in Maryland

A Path and Support to Changing Your ID in Maryland

Resources and One Family's Story

One family in Maryland succeeded in changing their child’s gender marker through the following process:

  1. First, they changed the child’s name through the court. Many recommend using “personal preference” for the reason.
  2. The letter from the court for the name change and a letter from an attending physician were sent to the passport office. Here are the official government requirements for a gender marker change on a passport.
  3. After getting the passport, they used that and a letter to change the gender marker for Social Security.
  4. They they used the Social Security and physician’s letter to change the driver’s license.
