    It took me 3 weeks to get it back – did it in january! Yours may be slowed down by the impending government shutdown.

    Mine took 2 weeks, but I paid for it to be expedited.  The fact that you are changing your name (versus getting a new passport) does not make a difference in processing times.  Just be aware that if the government shuts down next week there will be a significant delay in getting it back (maybe add an extra week).

    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. If I change my name right before my honeymoon, how can I get on a plane if the name is different on the ticket than it is on my license and passport?
