I've having trouble figuring out what steps to do first. I'm getting married in South Dakota but I am a resident of Minnesota. On the South Dakota Marriage License application, do I need to write my new last name, or write my current last name since technically my new name doesn't exist yet?
I also heard that in Minnesota you need to have your own court hearing to change your name? Others are saying that their MN marriage license already had their new last name on it, but since i'm getting married in SD I'm worried that the processes won't be as easy since its two different states.
