Oh geez.  I’ve only changed it at maybe 4 places.  I should probably do that, although more importantly I need to change my address too…

I don’t know if you will have the same problem but in order to change the name on our property in CO, I would have had to pay for a new registration for $50 and I didn’t want to do it!  So my old name is still on the home and the mortgage/insurance.  Don’t see a problem with that though.

Also, you don’t need to change your name on your taxes specifically.  That happens when you change your name with the Social Security Administration.  Just file the next tax return with your married name.

Whoa, that seems daunting.  I don’t look forward to that at all.  Do you know how long it typically takes for your passport to arrive with the new name?

@jennifer espos: Right now on their website, it says about 4-6 weeks to get a passport renewal back.

You can actually start changing your name with your credit cards and some banks and some of the other places without any need for proof – just tell them you’re married and your last name has changed (so you won’t need to wait for your license to come through).  Some banks will need a copy of your marriage license, but credit cards are really flexible.

Credit bureau will be updated automatically when you change it with the credit cards and banks because it’s tracked by your social security number, so you don’t actually need to notify them, either.. saves you a few minutes 🙂
