You may elect to change your surname by entering your new name in the appropriate space provided, on the marriage license at the time of signing. Whether or not you decide to use this option at the time of your marriage license application, you can still adopt a different surname at a future date. However, you will not be able to change your marriage license application to include a surname adopted at a later date.

If this is the case, notify your notary before your schedule appointment and he or she will inform you of the necessary steps to take.
