Do You Want to Take Your Spouse's Name?

In many cases, couples who get married wish to share the same last name. This allows them to build their family together and communicates to others that they have joined in union. Although it is traditional for a woman to take her husband's name, there are alternative options available to you. The husband could take the wife's name or they could choose to hyphenate their names together.

When you change your name for any reason, you will need to notify parties such as:

  • Taxing authorities
  • Creditors
  • Banks
  • Post office
  • DMV
  • SSA
  • Schools
  • Employers
  • Insurance agencies
  • Utility companies
