I filed papers to have a legal change of my first and middle names to female names. The announcement was posted in a local paper the required four times, and next month, I’ll get the court order, and then I can change my name on my social security card, my driver’s license, birth certificate, and credit cards. 10 months ago

I sent in the marriage license today. We paid to get a certified copy when we got our marriage license. So, hopefully we get will get within this month. Of course, the earlier the better.
After we get the marriage certificate back, I can go to the Social Security and get my name changed on the SS card.
Concurrently, I will update my bank’s information with my new name. 21 months ago
I’ve been known by my English name for practically my entire life, but my legal name remains my ethnic name from birth. This name change will only make official the name I truly identify with.Next steps after name change:
- Update banks, schools, employer, passport, driver’s license, health card, tax forms, social insurance, etc. 3 years ago
i’ve done most of this. i still have to notify my super fund (soon – tax time is coming up), and also to update my passports. i want to have my passports updated by the end of the year. 3 years ago
