Online name change services include all the governmental forms that need to be filled out and filed for legal compliance.
They include forms to change the name on your Social Security Card, driver's license, vehicle registration and voter's registration.
They may also include letters to notify your employer, bank, credit card companies and school.
Brides will appreciate this gift because it will make changing their last name easier.
