MissNowMrs Name Changing Service: Brilliant or Baffling?

The decision to change your last name after marriage is never a light one, and once you make up your mind, there's a long laundry list of documents you'll need to pull together.

That's where comes in. With packages ranging from $20 to $30, the service will guide you through the process (TurboTax style) in 30 minutes. It claims it will save you the 13 hours it can take to do the name-change form research and completion on your own. Would you opt for the paid support?

I'm a pretty organized person, but when I went to change my name and start making a list of all the places I had to update, I was so overwhelmed. Someone gave this to me as a bachelorette party gift and it was a life-saver! I entered my information in once, then all the forms printed out. So much easier than having to write the form letters to my bank, credit cards, loans, etc. and a huge time saver not having to go website to website to find the official government forms.

Agreed. While it can be time consuming (especially when waiting for copies of your license to come back) it really isn't all that difficult. I had to send my license off to the city anyway, so I just sent it along with a check. Once I get my copies, I'll go to the DOL and social security office and chance my name. From there, I just take an extra copy to the bank to change my name there, then to work to update their records and my paychecks then I'm doing my passport at my leisure, since I rarely go out of the country. At worst, I might have to take *one* work day off to get some stuff done. :P I don't know if the process is more or less difficult in other states, but it really doesn't seem worth spending $30 for advice given to me by other people who have been married within the last decade.

Waste of money! It wasn't that hard.

I would not pay for this, it was too simple doing it on my own. First, order an extra copy or two of your marriage license so you can send it to the places that require certified copies. Once you get your marriage license, your first priorities are your new passport, drivers license, and employer. Just fill out the forms and follow the instructions, it's really not that difficult. After that, make up a template letter and unofficial marriage license copies to send to anyone else that has your name in their files - banks, credit cards, landlords, utilities, frequent flier accounts, etc.
