Woohoo! I didn’t use that site/program, so I can’t speak to its benefits, but I personally found the name-change process to be pretty straightforward and am glad I didn’t spend money for a kit like that.

A lot of the forms that you need are available online. For example, the form you have to fill out at the Social Security office — I downloaded it from the SSA website and fillied it out before I went. I did both forms at once at the DMV for my license and voter registration, etc. I guess I figured that you have to go in-person to make all of the changes whether you have the kit or not…I could fill out a few forms by hand if necessary if it saved me $30.

Probably also depends on how complicated the name-change process will be in your situation.

Yay! I’m using missnowmrs.com and have found it to be really helpful. It’s nice to have everything all in one place and they provide an easy and straightforward instruction sheet for every form.

FYI, though, I’m only using the site because I got a Groupon and it was a really great deal. I’m not sure if I’d pay the $30 they charge.

Good luck!

I didn’t use any of the name change sites.  It really wasn’t that complicated, I didn’t even have to fill out a form at social security because they did it for me on the computer.  The DMV was also pretty straightforward since I needed a new license anyway.

When I got mine, they spelled my first name wrong! I was pissed!
