You can apply for the passport now.  I just did this yesterday, and all you need is a certified copy of your marriage certificate (you’ll probably need to go back where you got the original and have them make you a certified copy).  You’ll include that, two new passport pictures, and the $75 it costs with the application, and you should be good to go.  If you have more questions, PM me, I LITERALLY did this yesterday, no problems!

Check with where you would get your passport – You might have to be changed through SSA and the DMV before you can change it for your passport.  Of couse I may be completely wrong and you might only need your marriage license 🙂  Sorry Im not much help, Ive been married almost a year and I still need to change my passport.

@naangel55 – You actually don’t have to have changed anything when you apply for the new passport.  You only have to send them three things 1) your old passport 2) two recent passport photos 3) proof of your name change (by which they mean your marriage certificate).  Here in Nashville, we can do the passport application at the same place as we take care of drivers licenses, so I did, and I had already done my SS stuff, but apparently you don’t have to!

This is awesome to know.  I think out of all the things I need to change my drivers license might be the hardest!!  They want all kinds of verification of identification and residency even though I’m not changing any of that.
