@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: Okay, here’s how MissNowMrs.com works.
You sign up. There’s a $29 one-time fee for the service. There is an initial “form” document where you fill out your maiden name, married name, address, (optional) social security number, and any other information you might need on your forms for the passport office, DMV, social security office etc. You tell the service which state you’re in so it picks up the correct forms, then it autofills those fields for you.
There are specific documents for each office, including the three offices mentioned above, and there are generic forms that you can use to send to your bank(s), creditor(s), employer(s) or any other offices that may need to officially document your name change. Those may have sections you’d have to fill in individually, but there is a list of all the forms in a list that’s easy to switch between.
Each form comes with its own specific instructions, including what documents you need to bring, whether a certified marriage license is required or if a copy will do, and how much it will cost when you arrive at the office / mail off that form. Basically it cuts out all the time you’d have to spend researching those things on your own. Plus, it gives you the addresses for banking institutions, local SS offices, etc.
When you’ve completed filling out all the forms, it will go back through and make sure you’ve filled out all the necessary stuff and alert you if you’ve missed something, then give you PDFs of all the forms that you can download and print.
It did take a while for me to fill out the initial document and go back through and individually check the documents and fill in the gaps, but I believe it saved me hours of research work. I’d say time investment from beginning to end (including printing docs and assembling paperwork, minus waiting in line), was probably about 6 hours.
Let me know if you have any other questions! I am so glad someone came up with this service, because it was way easy to get through such a tedious process.
