The married name-change process involves filing a series of state and U.S. government name-change
forms using your certified marriage certificate as your legal proof of marriage. If you’re not getting
married, but want to change your name you will need to petition the U.S. court system for a name-
change order. We recommend using LegalZoom.com to obtain your name-change court order to begin
your name-change process.
