Marriage Name Change

  • Can I Keep My Maiden Name at Work?

    You can keep your maiden name at work while taking your spouse's name on all identification and records. That's because your married name is considered an 'assumed name'. This means you can go back to your former name at any time. 

  • How long does it take and cost?

    You can change your name any any time after marriage, though most brides make the change within a month or two.  Invsting in an Easy Name Change kit can save about half a day of your time.

  • How Soon Should I Change My Name?

    While it's common for married name change to take place within a few months of a wedding, there is no legal time frame required. You can choose to change names months or even years after you get married. 

  • How to Change Names after Marriage

    It's quite simple to change names after marriage.  All you need is your marriage certificate and an Easy Name Change personalised kit.
