Here’s a problem I’ll never have, but around 240,000 women in the UK have to deal with it every year.
When Miss Jones gets married and becomes Mrs Smith, there’s a lot of work to do. That was the inspiration behind MissNowMrs a US based service which has so far helped 82,000 women to make the transition. For £29.95 the company will notify all relevant parties including driving agencies, passport offices, social security authorities, banks and utilities. The company estimate that the service saves around 13 hours in wasted time. And they even offer a reversal service, come the divorce called GetYourNameBack.
I don’t know if anyone is doing this in the UK yet, but with over 240,000 marriages a year (and plenty of divorces as well) there certainly seems to be a need.
