Change surname of spouses

Service Description

There are many options when determining the name. You can determine the birth name or the name actually used by your spouse as the married name at the time of or after the marriage. The name from a previous marriage, including any accompanying name, can also be considered as the name actually used. There is no deadline for the declaration.

As spouses, you can also retain your previous names.

In some cases, special considerations must be taken into account, e.g. for the names of foreign spouses or if there are joint children born before the marriage. In these cases in particular, you should seek advice from the registry office.

The determination of the marriage name is irrevocable.
