Hello, my fiance and I live in Omaha, NE. We plan on getting married in Iowa soon and we want to both change our last names. My concern is how to go about getting our name changed in NE since NE does not recognize same sex marriage I fear our marriage license is not going to be enough for the state to also change our name without going through a court perition. If we need to go thorugh court it would cost us about $2000 total which is money we would like to have for our ceremony. Is there a way to avoid the court process? If so would it be better to keep our original last names when we get married and then each file a petition later on? Thank you!
