Changing Name on Drivers Lic. in Calif.

I still have my ex husband's last name. What will I need to bring to the DMV (that's where to start frist right)? It was 25 years ago when I first got married

My birth certificate
my first marriage certificate
my divorce papers?
my second marriage certificate

Does that sound right?

I waited to take my hubby's last name until the last of my sons graduated from high school. Last one left onto college this week.

Our 15 yr anniversary is this May 2013. (We have a daughter 13) Do you think I can get it done so I can wrap it up for him? I always teased him, the minute I do this, he better not divorce me

I think 15 years of my son's friends calling him by my last name (my ex) "hello Mr. X" makes him a saint. He always would answer hello ....

I think you need two additional forms of ID's plus the divorce/marriage papers. I'd stick you social security card in there as well.

I don't think you can do it that way. When you divorce, you can keep your name or go back to your maiden name.

When you marry, you have to start at Social Security and then go to the DMV.

You might be a bit late in taking your now-husband's name and you might have to go through the courts, which, by the way, is really quite easy to do.

I just know that when I married, I had to start at Social Security first, then everything fell into line.

Its actually pretty easy, and they have a "checklist on their web site
