Changing Your Name After Marriage – British Columbia

So your married! Woohoo. If you thought planning a wedding was challenging, wait until you try to change your name! Back when our team member and lead photographer Katey got married, there was little to no resources on changing your name. There certainly was no type of check list or helpful reminders!

To help all those lost and confused people out, we have some info & a check list on how to obtain your partners last name after marriage. Good luck!

Documents to change:

  • B.C. Drivers License
  • B.C. Services Card
  • Canadian Passport
  • Social Insurance Number

Other important things to change:

  • Car Insurance (Policy is not with ICBC)
  • Bank Accounts
  • Credit Cards
  • Life Insurance
  • Work place info
  • Extenended benefits
  • Mortgage
  • Optometrist
  • Family docotor
  • Gym Membership
  • Costco
  • Paypal
  • Amazon
  • Subscipstions
  • Cell Phone provider

The first step is to head to the DMV/ICBC and change over your BC drivers license + service card. You will need your marriage certificate to do this! Once you have that done, its super easy to roll through this list.

NOTE: A lot of places will not accept a picture or photocopy of the license, you will need the real deal to change your name, especially at the bank!
