Troubleshooting your Legal Name change

If Coinbase’s automated system did not work for your legal name change, you will need to contact Support. You can initiate this through the Coinbase Virtual Assistance in the bottom right of the article.

Please have your updated Identification card prepared to send to support to verify your updated legal name, as well as one of the following:

  • Certified copy of your Marriage License (for marriage related name changes)

  • Divorce Decree

  • Court order

  • Deed poll

A Coinbase support agent will provide you with a secure link to upload these documents. Please do NOT send these documents via messenger or email, to ensure the security of your information.
