Right now I think it's worth $30 to not do the legwork myself....anyone used their name change service before?

Once you have those two things done its really a lot of phone calls and stuff you can do over time.

I agree with Christine. It doesn't take that long to do it. Make an appointment with SS and get that done first, then go to DMV. After that it's a bunch of phone calls and mail.....I got almost everything done, well contacted a bunch of people....everything is changed except stupid student loans lost my paper work and haven't changed it over.....need to mail it (sorry they are stupid).... I faxed it to them but it doesn't work that way with them.
I also still have to change my Passport and my teaching credential....
But it doesn't take that long....

On a side note, I felt like I was in limbo right after the wedding.. was I Mrs. xxx or still Miss xxx? I had them change my email at work and everyone was so confused about who I was.. it was like I was officially married, but my name wasn't changed yet.. I couldn't wait for today! My new driver's license.. I would have went last week but had a HUGE zit on my face..lol.. those pictures last a very long and time and didn't want the permanent reminder about my awful zit. Any how! Now I'll have the name to match the ceremony!

i guess it just depends on personal preference

Plus, with our move I figured doing the DMV thing was stupid, cuz I'd have to do it all over again.
Well now look at me, I'm still my maiden name self masquerading as a married woman, using my husbands name when I can, but there is no legal requirement. DRRRR!

Who knows, I may just do it myself but appointment or not the DMV is hell (anyone watch that show Reaper? LOL) But I have to go eventually, right?
If I ever become Mrs. Jones, on my own or with paid help, I'll let you guys know )
