I changed my name by deed poll 2 months before I got married.

Customer Question

I changed my name by deed poll 2 months before I got married. On my marriage certificate the name is ***** ***** name and signed in my old name before the deed poll - is the marriage still valid?
Kind Regards

Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
yes your marriage is legal even though you used your old name - it does not invalidate the marriage (unless of course you were already married to some one else)
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
