Can I use a foreign marriage certificate?
Yes! You'll be able to use a NewlyNamed name change kit as long as your foreign marriage certificate was issued by an official government and is written in English. If you have questions about the official nature of your foreign marriage certificate, please contact your local Social Security Administration (SSA) office.
