    Changing Mrs to Miss?

    Ok, so after divorce i don't want to be referred to as Mrs. decided to keep my married surname as to keeping the same name as the kids. I do however want to change the Mrs to Miss. Anyone know what i need to do to change the Title?

    What you need to do is replace the 'r' with 'is':thumbsup:

    Yeah :lol: I was actually being serious though. Unlike surnames etc you don't actually need to register a title.

    I think, as you are not changing your surname you can use whatever title you like. Miss, Ms, Mrs, Dr etc. just use the appropriate one on all the forms you fill in from now on. :thumbsup:

    Thanks Reverand, hmm quite like the sound of Lady:-D

    actually you CAN change your surname,or christian name if you like without any paperwork-like I said,as long as you dont do it with any criminal intention you can call yourself anything you like.

    you are able to change a child's name by deed poll as long as all those with parental responsibility consent to the name change.

    for the last 10 years i have had a double barelled surname,mine and hubbys surnames,i have never changed it by deed poll just called myself it and have bank accounts,bills and cred cards in my double barelled surname but no official certificates/paperwork for my name change

    Why Miss and not Ms??

    i always thought MS was for older ladies,Miss for younger:oops:

    I agree.

    I have to go to Dublin and change my name by depol. Turns out my name has been spelt wrong in the hard copy of my birth certificate. So I have 2 passports each with a different spelling/name:-

    Catherina- what Ive been using for years.
    Catriona -Wrongly spelt

    lol!!! as long as you use a name in scotland for two years it becomes legal

    yours, orange snugglebottom:-D

    you normally would use Ms if you have been divorced, miss is normally for before you are married. you don't have to do a thing..... just call gas, elec, mortgage, etc and ask them to change it on your accounts

    Should either or both of the couple decide to have a double-barrelled surname a Deed Poll is usually required. Although some companies and organisations will change their records to show a double-barrelled surname upon presentation of the civil partnership certificate, many will not, particularly the financial institutions (just as they require a Deed Poll to double-barrel the surnames of married couples). A Deed Poll will guarantee that the surname you choose will be accepted by everyone without question. Please note, all government departments, including the Passport Office and DVLA, will accept a civil partnership certificate as documentary evidence of a change to a double-barrelled surname (for both partners). The only way to find out if you need a Deed Poll is to contact everyone you deal with, for example, your bank, building society, credit card company and mortgage company etc and ask what their policy is for double-barrelling surnames following a civil partnership. No doubt, in time, companies and organisations that currently do not allow double-barrelling using a civil partnership certificate will review their name change policy and follow the lead taken by the government.:whistling:

    It's a fairly new thing though isn't it? I think that, like Lynds says, most go to Ms after divorce.
    Back in the day you just stayed a Miss if you never got married. ( Old spinsters - Miss this and Miss that)
    Now I think that Ms is often used for the older lady, as you say. A bit like Signorina for an Italian lass which automatically changes to Signora when adult.
    I suppose it's all just personal prefence, unless we have missed seeing the handbook on etiquette for ladies!!

    I would usually address a lady as Ms if I didn't know if she was married or not...

    i was told that the CAB can see thru double-barrelled name changes too but never got round to doing it as there hasnt been any reason to for me as yet
