    Questions about changing name after marriage

    Advertisements
    So i was just wondering if there are any time limits change last name after you got married.. I am a little bit confused about this..so when you are at the courthouse, do you have to tell them whether you want to change your last name or not? So then if i decided to do, do i HAVE to tell the social security place, DMV, passport place and stuff?

    Since we wont be telling any of our family that we get married, i didnt want them to mail stuff at my house and have a different last name on mail.

    Thanks in advance!

    i think you can change your name whenever you want to whatever you want...remember friends and princess consuela banana hammock (phoebie)

    anyways...good luck with keeping that a secret!! when are you telling the family?

    I took about 6 months to change my last name. You dont have to do it right away or at all if you dont want to.

    You can change your name when you want to. I got married 3 months ago and I still use my maiden name on all my documents. I am going to change my name when my major things "expire" and also before they print my MBA diploma.

    on the upcoming nuptuals !
