You’re not able to use your maiden name as your middle name when getting your license in NYC- you’d have to do that through the courts. I just got my license last week and asked like 10 different people hoping to get a different answer…

I wanted to do this and gave up on the idea when I found out I’d have to pay $210 to petition the court. Good luck!

Yak :  Oh man that sucks… No wonder so many married women I know never changed their name, it’s all or nothing here. Let’s see what happens!

I guess changing your name from Jane Xxx to Jane Xxx Yyy where Xxx is now you middle name would take a court process, because you’re not changing just your last name. 

I would just use it anyway – that’s what I’ve done with my maiden name.  Over the years of signing documents it’s become semi-official. Half the time I’m Jane Xxx yyy and half the time I’m Jane Yyy. No one seems to notice or care. As long as your drivers licence and passport are the same, it’s fine.
