What is a name change template?

A name change template is used to inform others that you have changed your legal name.  People change their names for a variety of reasons including marriage, divorce, transition, or adoption.  When you change your name, it’s important to let your contacts know. A name change template can be used to let all of your contacts know your new name at once.

This form should only be used once you have already legally changed your name via a marriage certificate or court order.

Who should use this document?

A name change notification letter should be used if you need to let your personal and business contacts know about your legal name change.  Some of the organizations who should be informed about your change of name include:

  • Employers
  • Schools
  • Landlords
  • Government Agencies: Social Security Administration, Department of Motor Vehicles, Voter Registration
  • Post Office
  • Doctors
  • Credit Rating Bureaus
  • Banks and Investment Brokers
  • Credit Card Companies
  • Professional Associations

Note that some of these organizations will require additional documents to officially change your name with them.  They may require you to fill out a form, show an original or certified copy of your U.S. marriage certificate, or official records from the court confirming your new legal name.
