S4 E4: CHANGING YOUR SURNAME AFTER MARRIAGE

We know there are lots of arguments against changing your names in this day and age, but if you are following tradition and making the switch after the big day you need to prepare yourself for the stress its going to entail.

This week Kerrie is joined by Laura of mymarriednamechange.com to talk all things new surnames. Laura runs a really helpful service (which Kerrie used) to make the whole process really easy because once you start you'll realise there is LOTS of paperwork involved.

Laura also has a great discount for our listeners this week as well, so if you listen along and fancy giving her service a go use the code GETWED for 20% off.

 

WHAT YOU'LL HEAR

  • The costs involved with changing your name
  • Whether the same rules apply for double-barrelling, hyphanting or if men decide to change their names.
  • How soon you should change your mind
  • Where to even start!
  • Do you need to get a new passport before going on your honeymoon?
  • More about the My Married Name Change service (and a discount for you!)

Inspired, she started My Married Name Change. A service that simplifies the whole process, allowing you to carry on in newly-wed bliss after the big day.
