Most Popular Questions
Will this service finalize my name change with various offices for me?
Unfortunately, we cannot change your name on your behalf. While we cannot complete the process for you, our service expedites the process and makes it much simpler! Instead of researching the information and handwriting all forms, you'll have access to our advanced document preparation software, pre-drafted notification letter templates, detailed guidance for each step of the process and access to our knowledgeable support staff -- all of this provided with a 100% money back guarantee.
What is the cost of your name change service and will I still have to pay filing fees when submitting my completed documents?
Our name change service varies in price depending on the type of name change. Our prices are as follows:
- - Divorce Name Change - $34
- - Legal Name Change - $45
- - Married Name Change - $47
Filing fees vary depending on the type of name change and the state where you are changing your name. An example of this would be if you incur court or attorney fees, such as in the case of a legal name change, the cost will likely be higher than a married name change. What you pay for our service doesn’t include any filing fees owed to the issuing authority.
Am I able to get the required forms to change my name without having to pay?
By contacting the relevant state or federal agencies, you can obtain blank name change application forms at no charge. By doing your own research, you can get these forms online. Even though the forms are free, you will still owe any required filing fees.
After getting married or divorced, do I have to change my name within a certain time period?
Usually, there is not a time limit to change your name. That being said, check with your local jurisdiction to make sure that your marriage certificate or divorce decree will still suffice to change your name if a long period of time has lapsed since the official marriage or divorce. After changing your name with the Social Security Administration, you must update your driver license within 30 days.
A marriage license is obtained, prior to your marriage, from the courthouse in the county where you will be getting married. Your marriage license permits your legal marriage and will be signed by your officiant and witnesses. This form must be submitted to the proper county office within a few days of your marriage ceremony. The county office will process an official record of your marriage.
A marriage certificate is your recorded marriage license certified by the county court after your legal union. Your marriage certificate will usually arrive a couple of weeks after processing your license with your county court. Your marriage certificate proves that you are legally married and is a required document for you to process your name change. Our service outlines how to obtain your marriage certificate if you don’t already have a certified copy.
When submitting your personal information in our system, make sure to note the hyphenated last name you will be taking and we will pre-fill your documents with your new hyphenated last name.
The state of California is the only exception to this rule. If you were married in California and are seeking your married name change in that state, you can list an alternative last name on your license that is formed from each spouse’s previous last name.
