I've been married for 3 years, but never took my husband's last name, even though I use his name socially. I want to make the change legally, but before I do, I want to change my maiden name. (I've severed all ties with that family and want to leave their name behind.)
Current name: A
Husband's name: B
Name I am petitioning for: C
Can you offer any advice in going from A ==> C ==> B?
Will I need a new license, soc card, passport, etc. in Name C before applying for them in Name B? Or is it enough to use my court certified paperwork to change my marriage license, using that amended marriage license to get new IDs in my new name (B)?
Do you see why I need advice? :-)
