name change - help!
i've heard of so many women these days dropping their middle names when they get married, and moving their birth surname into their "middle name" position.
today when i asked about this at the county clerk's office (MI), i was told that that's not possible - without legally changing my name on my birth certificate first (before the wedding!). in other words, she told me i'd have to pay for a legal name change first, and change it on my birth certicate, so that i'm going INTO the marriage with my current last name moved over as my middle name.
even if i move my current last name over, what would my last name be between now and the wedding?!!!!!!
i am so confused. does anyone have any info about this?
