- Don't change your name on marriage (taking your husband's name) and certainly not via a hyphenated combination of both names.
- File in a special file examples of utility bills in your chosen surname for both your old address and your new - don't let your husband pay all the bills or do all the admin and leave you with no inbound letters bearing your name.
- Keep your passport and book all flights, car hire etc in your 'old' name. Also sign onto doctors, dentists and anything else in that name.
- If you have to attend any interview like this then take your passport, PPSN card, any other 'smart card' with photo ID, marriage cert etc but probably NOT your letter of appointment for a cervical smear test.
- Don't lose your driving licence in Belfast.
- Drink plenty of tea or maybe some gin.
- Be prepared for a 12 week wait anyway.
