Do NOT Buy!!!!
I received this book as a gift and thought it was a cool idea. I read that I should change my SS Number first and to send in my marriage license, which could take 4-6 weeks (original document was needed). I told my friend about it and a week later she called me saying that all I had to do was Google the closest SS Office, and then go there directly...which I did and it only took me about ten minutes and I was done. I also got my marriage license back right away so I was ready for the next stop. My next attempt was to use the included return labels for my thank you notes. I spent hours trying to use the software and have them print out correctly....still haven't figured it out! So, my two attempts to use this book failed. So please, save yourself the money and do everything on your own-it will take you half the time!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Inaccurate Information! DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!
Please just save yourself the time and headache and just do the research yourself. Not only is 80% of the material in this book wrong, but the software is useless. I am actually in the process of trying to track down my passport after realizing that the form they tell you to fill out for the name change is not the correct form. In addition the address they told me to send it to ended up being the wrong address. Had I just called the passport agency myself I would have known this. Save yourself the trouble and just take the five minutes and call the agencies. Most of them have websites with info to walk you through the name change process. Good luck!!Was this review helpful?

Only useful for those without computers.
I wish I had read other reviews before purchasing. After installing the software, my computer crashed. Not relating the two incidents, I tried it on my husband's computer. His also crashed. (We are both running Windows 2000.) We discovered that the forms we needed in the book were all easily found on the web for free. So if you are willing to take a little time to surf the web, it's a waste of money (and time trying to fix your computer). The book's publishing company no longer has it available on their website and has a different name change kit instead...I think that says something about the product as well.Was this review helpful?
