Has anyone used an online service to change their name?

Recommended Posts

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. http://wedding.theknot.com/wedding-planning/planning-a-wedding/articles/name-change-101.aspx

 

I wouldnt change your name though until you get back from your wedding and/or honeymoon. Your passport can take a couple of weeks to months to get back. I started with getting my SS card switched which took about 2.5 weeks, and I am actually headed to the DMV to get my new id/license. I'm sending in all my passport info on Monday, and once I get my id mailed to me from the DMV, Ill start changing all of my bank accounts over.

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.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
