I’m American, FH is British, and we’ll be getting married/living in the UK. I’m assuming I just need to take my passport to the US embassy in London in order to change my name after we get married… is this right? Anyone else been through this particular situation? How did you legally change your name in the US while living in your husband’s home country?

I did this. We got married in the US and I changed my name the day I returned from my honeymoon. Then I had my official name change logged in the US for social security as well as my marriage liscence and went to the nearest consulate. I needed to make an appointment so I would suggest you check online before showing up. It was just like a normal passport renewal but with a name change form. I could have even mailed it in but went in person in order to speed up the process.

Definitely check with your nearest consulate/embassy and ask what they need to see and whether you need an appointment. I was in the reversed situation; German citizen, married and living in the US. I needed to fill out a name-change petition, have it notarized, and bring my and my husband’s passports, as well as the marriage certificate to make the name change valid in Germany.
