If This is Your Second Marriage- Passport Question!

Recommended Posts

I have a quick question for those of you getting remarried (and already have or have applied for your passport). When you applied for it, did you need to take your first marriage license or divorce decree with you to show why you went from maiden to married name?

 

My mom just applied (and got hers in less than a month!) and all she needed was birth cert., s.s card and drivers license....nothing else.

 

Thanks!

You know I can't remember, but I think I did take my Marriage license and birth certificate with me. I never changed my name back to my maiden name so I had to prove who I was. Even more of an issue when I had to change my DL over to my married name, they wanted proof I was married, then divorced then married again..

I don't think I needed anything more than my driver's license and birth certificate. I bet the name history can be tracked under the ss #. My present passport is under my past married name. I haven't changed it to my new name yet.

i changed my passport back to my maiden name right before the wedding, and all i had to show was a divorce decree. i will then need to show my new marriage license to get it to my new married name. not sure that helps!
