Hi there! This one's for all the marrieds who changed middle and last names and survived.
I'm in the middle of the excruciating process of changing my name so that my name is now Firstname Middlenameismaidenname Marriedlastname. This is proving to be a huge pain in the ass. Legally, this is my name and my new social security card reflects this, but the Department of Transportation will not issue me a new license unless I can provide two additional documents (not including my social security card or marriage license) that identify me as Firstname Middlenameismaidenname Marriedlastname specifically. This is proving to be a catch-22 since things like my auto insurance and registration can't be changed until my license is.
The DMV even rejected my bank's proof of name change because the paperwork wasn't my monthly statement. I've contacted my utility companies and am also waiting to receive forms so I can change my name with them. (If it helps, I live in Pennsylvania.)
I was really hoping to speed this along but I can't think of anything I can change over to my current name easily. Has anyone else done this and/or has any tricks to help me out?
TL;DR: Married person can't change middle and last name with DMV without proof that the new name is real. Any thoughts on what documents I can change then submit to the DMV?
