jen that's good, one of the last steps to being officially married!

carly, that bites! knock him upside the head or something :) you can change it professionally and like on your VM and stuff, just start telling people. that way by the time you get your cert and make it official, everyone will be used to Carly D'! :)

    You can mail it in. They have directions on their website. I got confused. LOL I decided it would be easier to wait in line for 2 hours with all the creepies. Your a lawyer- I'm sure you are smart enough to mail it in. :)

      Oh goodie, I'm def going to mail it in.

      Hmm now I wonder if I can use my married name as a lawyer since I got licensed under my maiden name. I would think I could right? Does anyone have any idea?

        There was some chatter I read on here before about what DR have to do for that since their medical license is in a different name. It sounded confusing. That really sucks!

          Yeah I am dealing with some of this and hubby did change his name too so he is suffering through all this as well. They spelled his name wrong so he has more issues than me.
          I hear you about the emotional part, I called someone yesterday and there was a pause while I searched my memory bank for my name--duuuh.

              Jen I moved to Nassau County so maybe I'll be able to get away with mailing it in? It doesn't say anything about Nassau so I'm assuming I would be okay. Gosh I really hope I can just mail it in.

                Oh you lucky girl. You are right, if you live in Nassau now, you can definitely mail it in. I thought you still lived in Flushing.

                  Not sure about the US but I would imagine its the same. Do you register your practising certificate (licence i suppose) with what we would call the Law Society? If so you just contact them and they change eveything for you its really easy.

                  After reading this I am so pleased I'm not changing my name lol
