Does it Matter How My Name is Listed on My Marriage Certificate?

If you are changing your name you may be concerned that your maiden name is printed on your certified marriage certificate or that you signed the certificate with your maiden signature.  As long as your name and your husband’s name are listed on the certificate you can use it as legal proof of marriage for name-change purposes.  The name you are changing to does not need to be listed on the certified marriage certificate.

    That is well known that money can make us autonomous. But how to act if one doesn’t have money? The one way is to try to get the mortgage loans or just auto loan.
