How to legally change your name

Recommended Posts

I believe for canada it is basically the same. You need your marriage certificate and your original ID and you start with your drivers license and health card, from there I think you can then apply for a new passport with your new name. You do not have to change your social insurance card as far as I know.

 

When filing your tax return, you simply input your new name on the return and check off the "married" status. You need to enter the date your marital status changed, so whatever your legal marriage date was, and then you are good to go.

I just went to change my name on my driver's license & couldn't!! In Colorado you must have a COUNTY issued marriage license to change your name. All we have is our Jamaican marriage license. So now we have to go to our local courthouse & get a marriage license, but the wedding date will be different. Luckily in Colorado you can marry yourself so we will just sign the paper & be on our way, but now I will have 2 different dates to keep track of.

Check with your local driver's license office before you leave for your wedding!!! You can get a marriage license from your courthouse & then just put the wedding date on it so you don't have to keep track of 2 different dates. What a pain!!!

Great thread!! I have my translated & notarized copy of my Spanish marriage certificate. I'm not sure I'll need it for everything but I got it just to be safe. I'll be starting my name change stuff soon so I'll post updates here as I go.
