Changing Legal Documents

Documentation changes for transgender and gender diverse people in Oregon can be a cumbersome and costly process. To help you better understand what needs to be done, the Eugene organization Trans*Ponder created and maintains a Transgender Documentation Change Primer. It includes a list of the common documentation changes needed, the process required to obtain them, their associated cost, legal resources, and methods of financial assistance.
