Free Marriage Name Change Checklist
Got your marriage certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages? Then you are ready to change names! There's no central 'register' of names, just reach out to each company and request your name is updated. Know which places to notify and keep track of your progress with our FREE personalised checklist. We're sure to have companies you haven't yet thought about.
How to save 8 hours.
Don't feel like waiting on hold with Medicare, the ATO or Centrelink? We explain the exact name change process for over 650 different Australian organisations! Get ready to send name change forms, letters and emails. Just attach your marriage certificate, sign and send! Each notification is pre-addressed and lists exactly what proof to include.
Rather do it yourself?
Contact each organisation in your checklist to learn their process. You may be sent a form, others may need a letter or email. Don't forget to ask if you should include a photocopy or certified copy of your marriage certificate! Some companies may also require photo ID. Also get email or postal addresses. This is time consuming! Allow 20 minutes per company to do the research and complete paperwork. Our average customer has 24 records to update, which takes 8 hours!
