Recommended Posts

Hi,

When I file AOS................ under last name, do we write my wife's last name b4 marriage or after marriage?

Will it create confusion? We haven't changed her names on any documents

I agree with Carrie, if she is going to take your surname it will save hassle later when trying to change her name

Hi,

When changing my surname to my husbands surname on any documents, bank accounts etc all i used was my marriage cert to show new last name and passport as photo id.

Hope this helps
