I am soon getting married and have some questions about hyphenating my last name. I would do so with my maiden name - husbands last name. Will i have to change my drivers license and passport which are currently in my maiden name or can i continue to use them. Do they automatically send me a new SS card with the name as listed on the marriage certificate? and if so, is that cause to have to change the DL and passport?
I guess my thinking is that as long as the maiden name is on everything (hyphenated or not), it doesn't matter. Really, no one would know my name changed if I don't change my DL or my passport unless I have to show them my SSN card too and that has the hyphenated name on it.
I would still sign legal docs with my hyphenated name, will this cause issues?
