My Fiance and I are struggling with who’s last name to take. I have a dutch last name so my last name begins with “van” then there is a space and the rest of my last name. We want to meld our last names so that we both take “van <his last name>” so I am able to keep my “van” and he can keep his last name.
I have heard that because we are combining our last names, that we will need a lawyer for legally changing our last name. Is this true? How much does it cost for 2 people to legally change their name?
