Once you’re married, you’ll need to change your name on all legal documents. You can change your name on your accounts by sending a copy of your marriage certificate. The requirements for changing your name do not vary by state, so changing your name in Florida is no different from doing so anywhere else in the country.
Online application assistance can simplify and streamline the process for many Florida marriage-related services, including: information on obtaining a new marriage license, reasons for requesting a marriage record, as well as changing your name after marriage. In addition to the free forms and general instructions available from your Clerk of Court, you will receive a comprehensive checklist and forms packet specific to your needs, fast answers to tough questions and prompt service from a friendly staff.
If you prefer to access additional marriage licenses and marriage records, visit a state-specific online resource for extra support regarding all your marriage licensing needs.
