Can I use my old passport even though I've legally changed my name?

I was married a few years ago and subsequently changed my name. My DL says my married name. We are preparing for international travel early next year, and I'm wondering if I need to pay the $110 to get a new passport or if we can just put my maiden name on the plane ticket. I'm a US citizen... [more inside]

changing last names at marriage

Getting married soon (woo!). The plan is to change our names to Me Mylast-Herlast and Her Herlast-Mylast. I don't know much about traditional name hyphenation. Will this be interpreted differently by people who are more aware of the customs? I'm worried about people thinking that my family name is HerLast and her family name is MyLast, etc. Any other advice on the topic would be appreciated as well.

I just want my name back, particularly since I never changed it in the first place.

I never changed my name after I got married, but I signed my name with my husband's last name on several legal documents. Now we're getting divorced, and my lawyer tells me that I have to request in my MDA that my name be restored to my maiden name. I live in Tennessee. Help me understand this please! [more inside]

New passport, new driver's license, new credit cards, new work ID, new checks, new name.

[When-to-change-name-filter] We were married by a judge in June 2010. Our big wedding is this May 2011. We're filing taxes jointly in a month or so. We're going on an out-of-country honeymoon in June 2011. Taking all of that into mind, when is it going to be easiest for me to legally take his name? [more inside]

But we just bought a business, and in the last couple of weeks I have signed dozens of legal and financial documents. I'm taking his last name- what is the difficulty level of doing name changes on all of these documents, and how soon do I need to have them completed? [more inside]

Okay, I'm married, now what?

Now that I'm married, what do I do next? I have a handle on the whole name change thing, but what laws/benefits/etc apply differently to me/us? What should I be doing about taxes and insurance? What else am I not thinking of? (We were married in Wisconsin; we live in Illinois.)
