We recently received our Spring 2010 copy of Get Married magazine and were elated to see that Stephanie Davis Smith, Editor of the magazine used our service and loved it! She called MissNowMrs a “Life saver” in her Editor’s Note and said, “Someone gave me a gift card to this incredible service called MissNowMrs. You sign up and they take care of all that messy paperwork, tracking down office hours, etc. when it comes time to change your name on your driver’s license, social security and other documents. Genius.” You can get your own copy of Get Married magazine via their website (it’s the perfect guide for savvy brides in need of creative wedding ideas): http://www.getmarried.com/magazine/.
You would think that in 2009, changing your name after marriage would be easier, but to most people it is an overwhelming process that can cause unnecessary stress! This is why it is important to know your resources! We at www.MissNowMrs.com have happily assisted in making brides-to-be and newlyweds a little less stressed and worry-free with our easy online nationwide name-change service! Here are some details for you below…
One of our prominent findings has been to recognize your options before it is time to change your name. Will you hyphenate, take your spouse’s last name, replace your middle name with your maiden name, or simply keep your maiden name? You should spend time prior to the wedding discussing these options with your fiancé to ensure that you come to a conclusion that makes both of you happy. Whatever decision you make, you should be sure to book your travel plans for the honeymoon under your maiden name because you most likely will not have enough time to change your name on your social security card, driver’s license, and passport before you depart!
Regardless of what state you reside in, you will benefit from requesting additional certified copies of your marriage certificate after your wedding, to use during the name-change process. Several state and U.S. government agencies require a certified copy of your marriage certificate as legal proof of your marriage before they will proceed with your name change.
Now, you are ready to begin the name-change process! There is a certain procedure required when submitting your State and U.S. Government name-change forms, luckily we have already taken the research out of the picture for you. We will also offer you our inside details and recommendations coming straight from the U.S. Government office personnel themselves!
Once you have changed all of your state and U.S. government documents, it is equally important to notify creditors of your name change. You may elect to make phone calls to each office or write a letter stating your previous name, new name, and that you are changing your name due to marriage. Some offices will require you to fill-out a name change request form or letter (along with a certified copy of your marriage certificate) before they will process your name change.
After planning a wedding the last thing you want to do is stress out about a name change! This is why we, at MissNowMrs.com offer you an online account for a one-stop-shop to provide you with a simplified transition, from Miss…to…Mrs.! Come visit us at: www.MissNowMrs.com and register for your account today!
