    can you get a marriage license on the same day you receive your divorce papers from judge?

  • Theresa Goodman

    On May 30, 2010 I was legally married in the state of Iowa to another woman. On our marriage license/certificate it states my legal name is now Goodman not Caldwell. I was told the state of FL will not even recognize license to change my name on my drivers license. Can they do that? This is a legal document. I will be changing my SS card. I did some research and it seems they will honor the name change. I was also wondering about my passport. I wonder if they will allow the name change?
