I am getting married in 2 weeks over my spring break, my fiancé is a Marine. In May I graduate from West Virginia University and will be moving down with him. I want to take his last name but I’m not sure exactly how it works, what steps do I have to do? How soon after I change my name do I have to change my passport and drivers license (which are both N.J.)? I want to change my last name ASAP but I also am going to be changing my driver’s license once I move there. I also have to enroll in DEERS and Tricare and get my spouse ID the day after I get married if I wait to change my name until I move down there do I have to change it again for deers etc. ? Am I better off changing it right away then enrolling in deers , Tricare, and getting my spouse ID ?
