Now that you’re married you may be wondering, “How do I officially change my name?”

One of the most exciting things for newlyweds can be sharing a name, but just being married doesn’t automatically change one’s name. After marriage, you have a choice of how you will change your name, or if you will even change your name at all. Once you make a decision, you will need to go through a process to make your new name official.

This process is the same for all couples. You can get a custom, county-specific Name Change Kit that walks you through the process. The Name Change Kit lets you enter your personal information through a secure website, and provides you with prefilled forms that you can print and send to the addresses that we provide based on your state and county. We also give you the hours of operation for these offices, if you would rather take your paperwork in person.
