I inquired about this when applying for my passport.  They gave me a form and told me if I did it with in a year it would be free.  Otherwise I assume it costs the same as a renewal.

@msgraphics: Are you serious??? I went to a few post offices and they told me I had to pay extra because I was getting it renewed early.

Do you happen to know what forms you got?

@rachaelrobin: Just as I tried to apply to you the Bee went down again. Ugh!  I have the form filed away at home and it will be a few hours before I get there.  But, I found name change info for you, it should explain it to you.  If you click on the form ds-5504 that should walk you thru what you need to do.

Yup, DS-5504 if its been less than a year… otherwise you pay the regular renewal fee with the usual renewal form (sorry, dont know that number off the top of my head since I’m using 5504).  Theres no extra charge for getting it done early, aside from the regular fee of $110 i think it is now.

Just as a note – the “less than a year” is less than a year since your current passport was issued, not less than a year since you’ve been married.

If you’ve had your current passport for more than a year, it will cost the regular renewal fee.

@Mrs.KMM: ah ok. Thanks, that’s the clincher.  I’ve had my passport for longer than 1 year.

I just read this, that really sucks, lol. I guess I’ll be paying the fee again too.
