    Hey ladies (and some gentleman),

      

       My fiance and I got legally married in CA in May. Our destination wedding is in 3 weeks in Mexico. I didn't go through the process of changing my name yet just in case the process took too long.

       So I think I have all the info on how to go about changing my name and all the offices I have to go to with the appropriate paperwork. However, I came across a website like this that claims to take care of everything:

    Has anyone done anything like this? Is it legit? Is it a scam? Am I better off just going in person?

     

    Thanks!!

      I would just do it yourself if I were you. I am in the process right now and it really isnt that difficult. I would be reluctant to give the website all of the personal information required to change your name. I found a website on The Knot that lists out the steps and I thought that was pretty helpful.

      I agree, I would just change it yourself.  It really isn't hard to change your name just a bit time consuming to go everywhere and get it changed.  In Alberta, the first thing I had to change was my drivers license.  After that is changed I was able to change everything else from passport, SIN card and bank accounts.  Some of the places I don't go to often such as Drs office and Dentist office I decided I would just change the next time I was there rather then make a special trip just to change my name.
