I vaguely remember a bee talking about doing this… I don’t think its worth it. The worst part of changing your name is waiting in line at the DMV/Social Security office and there’s nothing they can do about that.

I have it–it’s pretty good. I HATE paperwork though and always bungle it. If you are reasonably good with paperwork then you probably don’t need it. But I am not so I enlisted outside help!

I used it! It was extremely helpful and saved me a lot of time in filling out forms. You can opt not to put in your SSN and write it in by hand if you’re paranoid like me. ๐Ÿ™‚

@hyena: can you please give a litte rundown of how the whole thing works? Also, what is the cost and how long did it take you to get everything officially changed? It sounds WAY too good to be true but a service I would be interested in using if it’s a good one ๐Ÿ™‚

@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.
