Conducting a name change during and after marriage is a very common procedure. Most adult women choose and elect to change their surname and or hyphenate their maiden name during or after marriage. Your surname does not change automatically upon marriage unless you elect to change it. Namechangeinc's associates and paralegals have assisted thousands of newlyweds with their name change petitions during or after a marriage (below are a couple of common questions asked). All orders are processed within 24-48 hours (free shipping).
I'm planning to be married soon. Do I have to take my husbands or wives name? No: this is not a requirement or a law. Nothing in the law requires you to change your name when getting married; it is your personal choice. When you get married, you are free to decide if you are going to keep your own name or take your husband's name; without a court-ordered decree. In most states your husband can adopt your name, instead, if that's what you both prefer. However, in general you'll need a court order if you and your husband both want to change to a different name that you share.
Can I change my first name or my middle name? No: The law does not permit you to change your first name or middle name through marriage. If you want to change your first, middle, or even last name to a different name: you must file an adult name change. With an adult name change you are able to change your entire name (see adult name change for more information).
Same-sex partners and marriage: If your states permits same-sex marriages; the process is almost the same and all of the above applies.
Neither the use of, nor the failure to use, this option of selecting a new surname during or after marriage; through the use of the Marriage License application or name change decree, affects your right to adopt a different surname through usage at some future date (you will still be able to go back to your previous maiden name or simply a new name (see adult name change intro).
Your Marriage Certificate or court decree will constitutes proof that the use of the new surname or the retention of the former name is lawful.
Can I completely change my first, middle, or even my original surname? Yes (see adult name change introduction for more information).
