@ajillity81:  I have done most of that so far. The next thing on my list of things to do (as far as name change goes) is my passport. I have until Sept to do that but the sooner the better LoL

Men are lucky, they don’t have to do anything!

When are you allowed to change your name? And technically women don’t have to do anything either. 🙂 it’s a choice.

@Daizy914:  FYI: If you are going by the one-year rule, it applies to when you last renewed your passport NOT the date of your wedding.

@beemyname:  oh really? I had no idea! I thought that I had to change it because my Drivers license and SSC say my new name

@lovelymuse:  very true! lol but in the event that a woman decides to take her DH’s last name, we have to do all the work haha

What I’m saying is that if your passport is less than a year old you can change your name for free. Otherwise, you have to pay.

@beemyname:  oh I see, well my passport is 6 years old, expires in May 2017. So I would have to pay to have the name changed. . I plan on going out of the country in Sept 2014. We are planning a trip to Italy for our 1 year anniversary. We want to do one more big trip before we start strapping down on the $$ bc we want to start TTC by the end of 2014!!!!

@Daizy914:  If you are planning on renewing your passport, I recommend you do it now!  Wait times are much shorter than usual since it is not a high demand period.  I was told to expect a four week turnaround and I got mine back in under three!

@ajillity81:  Thanks for this list!  I’m waiting on our marriage license to arrive in the mail so I can start the process.  Smile

I totally forgot about changing my name on my passport.
