can I go to the DMV without getting my social security card (since obviously they will be mailing it)?
I am going to attempt to go tomorrow. I have been telling myself that all week, but I just printed the paperwork and have to get this done as school starts very soon.

    i don't think the 2 are related at all. in MN i've never had to have my SS card. actually my SS card still says my OLD married name - my DL is my maiden name. you'd be surprised how non-interrelated things are.

      I had to show that I had filed to get my new social security card but, no, I did not need the actual card. They looked at the paperwork that the social security office gave me and cross referenced it with my marriage certificate. I did it on the same day as my visit to social security. It was easy (in CA).

        Has anyone ever used this website to do their name change. I'm hesitating....

It also said on the form that you needed a license which had your old and new name- nobody in Mexico put my new name anywhere- I guess they wouldn't know if you were changing your name or not. Anyway, the guy asked me some questions about my parents' info, struggled to figure out the spanish license, and finally accepted it! Told me I'd get my new card in the next week or so!

          I'm going to the DMV today~ wish me luck that it goes as well, and that my pic is OK- I like my old one and don't want to change it!!!

          LOL. I had to get a new Social Security card when I started this job last year ... and, boy was I blown away by the characters in the waiting area. WOW. Makes for an interesting day, to say the least!

            So I'm totally procrastinating on this process... Everyday I walk by the forms for getting copies of our wedding cert but yet to send them in.
            Erik has asked me constantly if I've done it yet....

            Geesh...I do it! LOL
