Default BRP Name Change

Hi everyone. I知 a new member and I知 hoping to get answers to my queries. Thanks in advance! I知 on my 2nd FLR(M) under the 5-year route. My BRP and passport are still on my maiden name. However I知 going to renew my passport in my married name soon. I know that I have to update my BRP to my married name but I just don稚 know which form to use. Is it the MCC form or the online form that says Update, Replace or Transfer BRP etc? It痴 really confusing. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.

Thank you for your reply. Is the right form the one with 」161 fee? As I have a Further Leave to Remain. And not the MCC form? Thank you again.

Yes. The 」161 one is the correct one for FLR, which is what we used. It was known as TOC (Transfer of Conditions), maybe still is.
The other higher cost link if you already have ILR was also known as NTL (no time limit).

My understanding is if you are within 3 months of applying for ILR you can simply wait and update the name with the ILR application.
Sadly we were in between so had to apply but it only took about 5 weeks from posting to receiving the new BRP.

Thank you again for your answers. They池e very helpful as I was confused with the forms especially with the MCC form. My passport is going to expire in a year and I just got my 2nd FLR(M) last week so I cannot wait 2 and a half years without a passport. Will update my passport at the beginning of next year and after that my BRP. What documents did you submit if you don稚 mind me asking?

It was much simpler than the FLR AND ILR applications.
We only needed to send:

Old passport
New passport
Marriage certificate
Utility Bill and doctors registration letter as proof of identity/address. (There are other things such as driving licence you could use if you have one)
Two passport photographs.

We also had biometrics taken at the post office.

No need for financial/accommodation evidence as it not a new visa request as such. Your FLR has already been granted and approved.

Ours was done with a postal form, so you may not need the photos/biometrics as it all seems to be done by an appointment now with new online visa application systems.

But it should list requirements when you fill out the form.

You have to do it within 3 months of getting the new passport right? Not within 3 months of getting married? Thank you so much for the information. I really appreciate it. Yes everything is online now. So I値l just have to scan and upload everything on the UKVCAS. And then book an appointment.

Yes within 3 months of getting the new passport. My wife waited until her current passport expired until she changed it to our married name. Which was almost 4 years after we got married.
