Our Story

Our Background

NameChangeProcess.com is a product of Genesis Systems Inc., a company with expertise in vital statistics and the development of applications for vital records since 1987. As a leading provider of registration, issuance, and analysis software for vital records in the U.S., our applications contribute to registering about one-third of all births and one-fourth of deaths in the country. In 2008, GoCertificates.com was created to facilitate these orders and is dedicated to delivering certified copies of birth, death, marriage, and divorce certificates in collaboration with the issuing authority. Additionally, in specific jurisdictions, we provide marriage licenses and Name Change Kits.

Our Process

NameChangeProcess.com was created after the realization that newly married couples were lacking the tools needed to change their names after marriage. We've now been helping individuals navigate the process of changing their names after marriage or divorce since 2013. After answering some questions online, we feed the appropriate information onto the forms needed for a name change. Depending on the chosen option, the individual then sends out those forms to each institution by following the included personalized instructions specific to the individual’s location.

Our Guarantee

Rest assured, we guarantee a swift turnaround time in processing your order and strive to be helpful in simplifying the paperwork to ensure that individuals have an effective fast name change. Because the specific requirements and procedures for a name change can vary by state, NameChangeProcess bases each kit on where the individual resides.
