How do I change names after marriage?

If you want to change names after marriage there are only 3 options available. Both spouses have the same options available and as a couple, you can have different surnames.

You’ve had a great life with your name, so maybe you’re not ready to let it go. Is it okay to keep using your former name at work, even if you’ve changed names in other places? 

There’s no time limit on when you must start or complete the process. If you’ve decided not to change names, it’s okay to change your mind years later and simply show your marriage certificate as proof of your name change.

Is there a time limit for changing names after marriage?

Our customers generally have all their name change requests sent within a week or two of starting. Allow 4 to 6 weeks if you do your own research. Expect to pay for a new passport.

How long does it take and cost to change names after marriage?

You can take your spouse’s surname even if you were married overseas! Apply for your official foreign marriage certificate, then attach to our notifications and send.

Learn the 2 step process to changing names

This is the most difficult part about changing names as each company has to be notified separately. And the process for each company is different. You’ll need to send a range of forms, letters and emails.  

How do I notify companies of my new name? 

Change names online via HMRC. National Insurance and a number of other linked government modules can be updated at the same time. You’ll still need separate notification for licence, passport and some other places.  

How do I change names with National Insurance?

While all records should be changed over in a reasonable time, it’s okay to delay your passport if you still have travel booked in your former name. Complete the online passport application or send in a paper form.  

How do I change the name on my passport?

Electoral roll data is amalgamated from various sources throughout the year. You can advise of a name change online or to your local office. You can also request your name is kept the public register. 

How do I update my voter registration after changing names?

Your car or lorry licence can be updated by mail. You’ll need to send original identity documents, so it’s handy to have a few copies of your marriage certificate or deed poll.  

How do I change names on my driver’s licence?

A number of government records are linked from HMRC, so it’s a good idea to make HMRC a priority. Change names online and also advise if you have a change of domestic situation. 

How do I change names with HMRC?

If you need to change names in writing but the company doesn’t want the responsibility of handling your original documents you may be asked for a certified copy.  

How do I get certified copies?

Depending on your reason for changing names it’s either a marriage certificate, decree absolute or deed poll. You can use different documents to go back to your former name without being divorced and may need proof you have started using your new name. 

What proof documents do I need to change names?

Our customers save an average of 8 hours and get their names changed weeks faster! Our satisfaction guarantee means you have nothing to lose! If you enjoy waiting on hold, completing forms and writing letters then you don’t need Easy Name Change.
