    Wow, this is so hard that Beff the "Amazing English Major " couldn't figure it out on 5++ years


    [h=2]Overview of the Required Steps for an Adult Applicant in the State of New York[/h] Here are the basic steps involved in changing your name:

    1. Complete the interactive questionnaire which will compile the information needed for your name change documents.
    2. Print all of the documents.
    3. All necessary signatures must be witnessed and notarized by a Notary Public. (PLEASE NOTE: The Petition has two places for a signature which must be witnessed and notarized by a Notary Public. The main Petition must be signed and the Petition also contains a "Verification" which is a statement that all the information provided in the Petition is true.)
    4. If filing in Supreme Court, file the necessary documents with your County Clerk, depending upon where you reside. If you will be filing in Civil Court, file the necessary documents with the Court Clerk in the Civil Court within New York City where you have chosen to file your name change documents. (New York City residents must select a Civil Court in New York City, however, they do not need to be residents of the county/borough of the selected Court.)
    5. Pay the filing fee (If filing in Supreme Court, thus purchasing an Index Number, as detailed in our materials).
    6. Appear in person before the Court as directed (most cases involve a hearing).
    7. Upon approval of the Petition, the Judge will sign a Name Change Order. Within sixty (60) days of approval, make arrangements to publish in your local newspaper a notice of your proposed name change (required by most local jurisdictions).
    8. After publication, obtain a proof of publication (Affidavit of Publication) and file it with the County Clerk or Court Clerk (depending upon where you file) within ninety (90) days of the issuance of the Order.

    that is if you are changing name.
    NOT when you get married and taking spouse name.

    A full name change is substantially harder than a last name change to reflect a marriage.

    You take...
    Marriage license
    Proof of age, almost always hospital records or your birth certificate
    Identification. Your passport, driver's license or state ID works

    Then you take that stuff to the DMV and Social Security place and fill some forms out. SO EASY.

    This is child's play. It gets done a million of times a year in the U.S.

    From the haiku thread

    Five years later, still Beth O
    No wait, Beth Ostrosky-Stern!
    Gah, it's a whole thing!
