    I finally made it to the Post Office to apply for my Passport today.

    I was pleased to find out that there is a form we can fill out and mail back in after our name changes at NO COST as long as it is within 1 year of your inital Passport application.

    So, any of you ladies who will be changing your last name -- make sure you ask for this form if they do not offer it to you.

    I had a really nice lady who asked if I would need it, b/c otherwise I wouldn't have known and would have paid to get a new Passport with the name change.

    So, FYI.

        Last year I paid extra to expedite mine and it still took at least 3 months....

          I expedited mine for the extra cost and she said 2-3 weeks, so ... fingers crossed.

                  You should be okay since the lengthy delays have subsided ... but if you want to expedite it for peace of mind, I would recommend it. There wasn' much difference in price.

                  $127 for expediting the application and $45 for pics & processing.

                    I completed mine on-line then printed it off and mailed it. You have to send your old passport back along with new pics. But, you should have leftover pics from your first one. It took like 2 weeks to get my new one then a few days later the old one came back with a hole stamped all the way through it. Very easy process!
