How to legally change your name

Recommended Posts

It's almost been a year and I am FINALLY changing my name- thanks for this posting. I was procrastinating because I thought there was a lot to be done. But now it seems simple and stress-free!!!

I found out today that our provincial insurance corporation does not accept notarized copies of the marriage certificate to change my name, only translations from a SPECIFIC organization The Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia (S.T.I.B.C.). Other brides in Canada may want to check out this website to link to your home province translators.

 

Quote:
The Society of Translators and Interpreters of British Columbia (S.T.I.B.C.) was incorporated in 1981. It is a non-profit professional association and an affiliate of the Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council (CTTIC), the umbrella organization for the associations of translators and interpreters in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, the Yukon and Nunavut. CTTIC is a member of the FIT (Fé©ration Internationale des Traducteurs).
It may be different in other provinces, but at least it's a start. There's also links for translators in the USA & elsewhere on this page.

glad i read this post. i was just wondering about what to do for myself.

 

find it interesting you can add your maiden name as your middle name. i think that might solve my problem for deciding on keeping both. great tip!

Wow, great info. I had a general idea of the process but it's nice to be able to hear exactly what worked for others. I just got a new passport (mine expired 2 months before the wedding. DOH!!!!!!). But I am definitely changing my name, just a matter of going to all of the offices and filling out all the paperwork.

 

A related question is regarding combining finances. Is it easier to do once all the name change is completed? I don't want to get things confused so I wonder if it makes sense to do the name change first and then when all the dust settles, go take care of bank accounts?!? Any thoughts?

I've been married for 5 months, 3 weeks & 5 days, and FINALLY my government health care name is being changed!! Only passport is left but I'm not eager to change it, because of the cost & how long the dang form is. lol

 

(OMG I just realized it's almost been 6 months!!)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
