I’m sure you’ve heard this one before, but I had a question about the marriage certificate and name changing. I’ve read somewhere that the way you change your name when you get married is to just print it on the marriage certificate as the way you would like it. Can that be right?
If I want to change my name from Jean Marie Grey to Jean Marie Grey Summers would I just write all that on the marriage certificate and then use the certificate to change my license? How does that work?
Do any bees have two middle names? How do you sign things and how does it work with forms that require one middle name? Any help would be appreciated ^^

My name on my marriage certificate is my maiden name – you change it at the social security office when you get your marriage certificate back showing that you’r’e marriend

I think it depends on your state’s procedures, etc. For my state, you wrote it on the license, not the certificate. You were told to write down what you might want to change it to. You were allowed two variations.Didnt mean you have to do it, but it gave you the option in the future. Because if you didnt write it on the spot on the license, then you would have to go to court if you want to change it(and if it doesnt match whats on there). But the way you start to change your name in my state/county is to talk to social security first.(after you are married). You just sign your name with your regular(maiden) name signature on the actual marriage certificate.

for me, the marriage certificate shows my maiden name. Then for my name changes, I needed to show my ID’s and sometimes birth certificate AND marriage certificate; and fill forms with the way I wanted my name written from now on.
