Gender Marker and Name Change Clinics

Houston Volunteer Lawyers offers regular clinics to assist individuals in changing the gender marker and name. 

These clinics involve volunteer attorneys assisting the applicant in drafting the required forms and then giving instructions on how to proceed. An HVL staff attorney is available for further questions and unforseen problems. 

As there are various legal requirements to change one's gender and name in Texas, attendees need to be pre-screened. To be scheduled, please return the following to HVL:

The documents can be sent in by email (, mail (attn: Gender Marker Clinic) or fax (713-228-5826, attn: Gender Marker Clinic). Our staff attorney will screen all clients for suitability before setting them for an appointment at the next clinic.
