After marriage. The New Mrs. 2 kids; Lima, OH, United States 1301 posts

SO and I have decided on Oct 30th to get married. We ARE doing the court house wedding, for now. We're trying to keep it all within $100-150 price range, since we have a lot of other things that need to be paid as well.
So my question is. what all will I need to change after we are married?
Driver's license, SS card... ? what else?

Bank accounts, car notes, any other major bills.

Over here, you can re-register the birth of your children if you are marrying their father so that your married name appears on their birth certificates.



I forgot to change my paypal account and changed my bank details and started wondering why it wasn't working. All bills need changing, your name at your doctor's and dentist's offices. Any savings for your children that you are the guardian of. Membership and/or advantage cards.

We don't really have anything.



Just 2 bills, which are in my name.
I own my car, so would all that need changed for my title ? or is that what car notes mean? sorry, I'm new to all of this. As for bank account, he doesn't have one. all his places of employment have used the payroll cards. so it's just my account.

Anything financial that your maiden name is on will need to be changed. If you change it on one, you need to change it on all. Having a dl with your married name will cause issues if your bank account is in your maiden name. It all needs to match or it will cause you headaches.
