I recently just bought a car in NJ and the DMV won't give me my license plates because I have a NJ state ID in my married last name. When I got married, my last name didn't change, not even with social security. I just got served with divorce papers and that will expire in 30 days and my temporary plates will expire in 8 days. I showed up at the DMV with 6point ID verification and told them I need to change my NYC license with single name to NJ license because of my married last name on my NJ state ID and the person who checks the 6point verification said I need to get a letter from the judge but my temporary plates will expire in 8 days. What can I do? Should I try to go to the DMV again and just say I need an ID change? The car dealer said they can only give me one temporary plate.
