My DF and I are planning on getting married at the courthouse next week.



My question is,will my name be changed automadically or will I have to do something in order to change it? I know it sounds stupid but I was told at the dmv today that just because I'm getting married doesn't mean I will have his last name?

You have to bring the marriage license to the Social Security office and get a new ss card. Once you have that you go to the dmv and get your name changed on your id

You have to go to the ss office and change it with your marriage certificate. After you get your ss card then you change it at the dmv.

You have to go to the social security office, and get it changed, THEN, go to the dmv and have them change your name once you get your new social.

You will have to change it with SS first, then at the DMV after you get your new card. I didn't change mine last time thankfully.

In ga, you have to go to the social security office and show them your marriage license, you also have to bring paperwork to the DMV. You need to contact your bank, credit card companies and any utility places to change your name on the account.

You indicate on the marriage license what you will go by and then you take that to get everything changed.

You have to go with your marriage certificate and get a new SS card, then change your name everywhere else when you get your new card to show them.
