I just got married on Saturday and I am applying for new jobs. I’m wondering if I should be using my new last name, even though the paperwork isn’t finalized and I wouldn’t have any proof of the new name other than the decorative marriage certificate we signed- which really isn’t proof at all. Should I stick with my maiden name until I get all the paperwork processed or should I use my new last name from the start? I’d probably run into issues if I got offered a job and they needed to see photo ID, so I’m thinking I need to stick to the maiden name for now but I thought I would see if anyone else has experienced this dilemma. Thank you!

I would go ahead and use your new one. Not sure about your state, but I was able to get my license immediately in my new name.
Job searching and interviewing can take a while so by the time you need show proof, you will have it.

I would use the new name. Once you file the marriage certificate, its legit. If you really need ‘proof’ of who you are, just get a certified copy from your town hall.

I started using my new name as soon as I possibly could!!
Also, if you start a new job using your old name you may have trouble changing everything over to your new name as I’m currently having
