I need advice on the steps that I need to take for my name change. We were married in Jamaica so we have the signed certificate that we signed that day we will not get our offical one for up to 6-8 weeks. So in the mean time what do i need to do?

You can’t change your name until you get the official record back showing that it has been recorded. Then the first place you should go is Social Security, then the DMV. Once you get your new license, you can change your other accounts.

Does anyone know the cost of changing your name? I know that when a person gets their marriage license changing your name is optional and free. How much does it cost to get a new license with your new name? How much does it cost to get a new passport with your new name (passports are usually SO expensive)? Are there other fees when you change your name? I am hoping to hyphenate mine, but I may not do this if I have hundreds in fees. Most of the women in my family kept their maiden names, anyway.
