I finally received my passport after applying for a new one with my name change. I sent in my original marriage license and it wasn’t in the envelope with my passport! I remember the first time getting my birth certificate back… will I not get my marriage license back?

@Pupperoni: I JUST did this! I got my new passport one day and within a day or two got my marriage cert back. In the instructions it has fine print that says the documentation will be returned separately.

They sent mine back seperately.

They will always send documents back separately supposedly for security reasons. When I changed my name, I had to send in my old but still valid passport and marriage certificate. New passport came in one envelope, a few days later my marriage certificate came back, and about a week later my old passport came back with a hold punch through it to invalidate it. Seems like a waste of money, but this is the government we are talking about.
