What's up Florida taking good pictures for drivers licenses? Both yours and Linde's turned out great. Mines hideous, which is why I never posted a picture of it here.

Congratulations on having all the right papers.

thank you. F .. YES!!! Both SS and DMV were great and easy to work with. The DMV agent we got asked about my last name. It seems that his fiancé has the same last name. Could be related, the first name matches plenty of relatives in that age group that I lost touch with.

Such sweet progress Faith, very happy for you, it's a very affirming step to take to have official ID in correct name / gender and a change that will pay you back over and over.

Best

things are progressing well, from a legal/id standpoint. I have a lot of changes finished already, just a few more to go. After that, it'll be down to erroneous old mailing lists that I'll have to deal with.

Next 'legal' step with be my birth certificate. I have no idea how that will proceed since I live in FL and born in NY.
I will not be changing my marriage license/certificate. I got married as John, she married John, it's staying that way. We will, however, have a nice signed document stating Faith and Lori when we renew our vows on our 40th anniversary.

Glad to hear everything is progressing well...reaffirming your vows is a nice touch and I am sure it will be a significant moment for you once again.

Guess there was one benefit to still being in Wisconsin last spring with the ease of getting my birth certificate updated. Not sure why I thought I needed 3 official copies of it though. Probably because they were a lot cheaper than I expected.

Also not changing the marriage license. That was at my wife's request, though I had not thought about it either way.  One of the <poor> things I did during a dysphoria episode was not renew our vows when we were in Vegas a number of years ago. Not sure if my wife would be totally comfortable with a renewal yet. We're at 32 years so maybe when we get to 40. You must have gotten married pretty young if you're planning something for your 40th already.

You'll be surprised by all the little things that keep popping up that you want to change your name on. After a year now I'm  pretty close to the point where I can just toss any my that comes addressed to old name.

Since you're a 2.0 d venture that someone that knows about NY birth certificates will be along shortly with some knowledge of that. If you have a passport you don't need your birth certificate to fix that but you do have to use the form for a new one rather than renewal to change the gender marker.

yeah, a few things. Like the insurance that you mentioned. I should have done that yesterday, I forgot.
Marriage license was my choice, my wife was happy about it and that I was OK with it.

I have all the forms necessary for the birth cert except .. they want a certified copy of the original cert. So, I have to request one from them, just to send it back to them  ::)

no passport. I do plan on getting one as soon as the birth cert is changed

My old license picture could have fit into a horror picture show.  They either have better equipment now, or Faith and I are so unbeliebte beautiful that even bad equipment makes good pictures of us!  Who knows?

I will meet with the Post Office passport person next week and get my passport going.  They require the same documentation I would need for changing the naturalization certificate.

Which, if any, benefit do you see in updating the birth certificate? 
For me it would be my naturalization certificate, and they want to have close to $600 for doing this!  I wonder if there is any return on investment for this?  I will have my passport gendered right without the certificate, what more would one need?

Birth Certificate is a requirement to get a passport. I want it to reflect me and to match my id.

The birth cert is a nice to have, I did mine several years ago. You can update US passport even if your old name / gender is present on original birth cert. You just need a Dr letter showing transition completed, and court order showing name change (if applicable).

Best of luck Faith, it's wonderful when it's all done...

what they told me, it is not when you had a passport before.  I have a current dead name one, and that seems to be the only documentation they want to see as proof of citizenship for a new passport.
The new name and the female stuff they take from the judgement and the letters of the health care providers (same as social security).  That's what they told me when I called.

I think the birth certificate may be required if you do not have a passport already, and if you want to change old records like from school, etc.

You need the birth certificate if you never had a passport before.  If you're lucky enough to be able to get the gender marker on the birth certificate changed also,  you won't need the very specific doctor's letter to get it right for your  passport.

that's the plan :)  NY does allow for gender marker change
