Changing Your Name
You did it. You got married (or divorced). You have a shiny new marriage license (or divorce decree) but your passport or driver's license are still in your old name. Indeed, not everyone interested in changing their name is doing so after a wedding or divorce. Some people, for a variety of reasons, may want to go before a judge for a new name. Fear not, for changing your name doesn't have to be a chore. But changing your name does require some legal steps on your part. FindLaw has tips on the legal procedure for name changes, FAQs on changing your name, and more.
