The only document needed to start changing names after marriage is your marriage certificate. Religious certificates can be used in most places, but are accepted. We explain how to order your certificate from Vital Statistics.
You may have only been known by your maiden name, or perhaps you have had more than one name. After divorcing you may revert to any name you have legally held, providing you have sufficient paperwork to prove your link to that name.
Once you have a legal name change order, Easy Name Change helps get your records and identification updated. We provide comprehensive name change procedures for hundreds of Florida and national organizations.
You do not need to update your name directly with the IRS after your marriage, divorce or legal name change. The IRS gets updated details from the SSA, so ensure your social security records have been updated.
