Hi Linda. Once your marriage license has been recorded and marriage certificate issued, it's too late to change it for anything other than grammatical errors and mistakes. I got married in Tennessee live in Georgia no one told me I had to file anything in Georgia. I was told that I'm not legally married. I kept my old name and just living with him. His deceases wife had my same first name. I learned after the fact that their credit was the pitts.
I have never put any of my money or property with him. We do not share anything as a couple. Hi Dorothy. I'm not sure what you're asking? Whether you file your taxes jointly or separately, you'd still specify that you're married. We live in GA but we married in NV.
We have been married for 5 years. Do I need to go through the court? No need for court. Just use a certified copy of your Nevada marriage certificate as it stands. If you don't have it, contact the Nevada county recorder not county clerk that recorded your marriage license. I was just divorced on June after a 13 yr marriage I did not petition to change my name at the time of my divorce due to business reasons Now however I wish to change my name back to my maiden and I am very confused by this process. Can you tell me what I need to do and will it cost me now since my name was not changed in divorce?
Hi Sarah. You'll have to petition your local superior court. I was divorced and I have heard there is a 60 day limit in Georgia to change your name from the date the final order was signed. Is that correct? To clarify the final orders do say my maiden name is to be restored and lists my full maiden name. The 60 days refers to you needing to update your driver's license upon changing your name. Simply having an order in your divorce decree providing you a pathway to return to your maiden name doesn't constitute changing your name.
Once you change it with the SSA, the 60 countdown clock begins. The judge or court isn't concerned about you actually going through with the name change. They're just providing you the option to do so, per your request. If you change your mind, it's no big deal. I got married 2 years ago and I have not change my last name because i was told i would have to take both of his last names.

I married a few years after I had my daughter. My daughter has her father's last name and I wanted to change it to my new last name. Does my husband have to adopt her or we can just go to court to get her last name changed to his? After I got married in Georgia, I moved to TN and changed my name by making my maiden name my middle name and taking my husband's name as my last name.
We have since moved back to GA and I am looking to go back to work after taking an extended break. I'd like to use my maiden name professionally as my last name. Do I have to do any additional paperwork to be able to do so? Could I still sign checks and legal docs using my maiden name?
Hi Robin. Legal documents should be in your maiden name. You may want to consider getting a DBA in your maiden name.
I recently married for the second time. What do I need to take with me to change my name? Birth certifucate. Both marriage certificates? Divorce decree? Hi Joanie. Your marriage certificate authorizes the name change.

What is the best way to get my full name changed with marriage in GA? I believe GA only gives you the option to change your surname after marriage. So do I have to get my last name changed first and get my name changed or vice versa OR is there a way I can get it done at one time? Since you'll have to go to court anyway, you can diversify your first, middle, and last name all at once.
So when my husband and I got married he used his Mexican license as proof for the marriage application. Once he applied for residency, he was legally able to drop the hyphenated last name from his paperwork and license. I tried to go to the DMV to change my last name and they did not allow it bc they wanted me to hyphenate my last name like the marriage application.
How do I change my last name to his legal last name now? We are a same-sex couple getting married this upcoming month. She kept her ex husbands name to match the kids. Now, my question is can I take that same last name when we are married? Or must we use mine, or her maiden name? Ideally we would like for me to change my last name to hers which is her ex husbands.

I am to marry a year from now. Would like to keep my deceased husband's last name as my middle name when I marry. Is that possible without legal action? Hi Teresa. You can swap out your middle name for your maiden name, but I don't believe you can use the name of your deceased husband. When you apply next year, you'll be given the option to choose a new first, middle, and last name.
