Some big changes in my life
« on: August 06, 2021, 01:53:47 pm »
I have not made a new post in a very long time. Truth is I have a rather boring life and generally do not have much to report. But over the last month I have had two large and note worthy life changes that I would love to share

The first is on July 2, I got married to my lovely partner now wife Kay. It has been a long time coming what with 3 postponements due to Covid lockdown but finally happened

The second, with my change of surname due to marriage I did the “deed” and changed my legal name. Now the fun starts changing my name at all the institutions. So far it has been quite easy. Banks have all gone smoothly with my main bank very happy to oblige. A number of emails required for other places, I have to go to a post office to get a form for driving licence and currently leaving my passport as it is so expensive to change and it has a number of years to run and “ain’t going nowhere soon”.

I feel so happy just need the NHS to pull there fingers out

Dear Jessica

It is wonderful to hear from you and especially with so much delightful uplifting news.

Congratulations on both fronts. I wish you and Kay every happiness.

I hope to see you on the next UK Meetup of which the organiser has recently told me, she still intends to arrange later this year.

Hugs

Hi Jessica,

Congratulations on getting married!

My wife has passed but due to the way our Social Security works I get to collect on her SS benefits when I turn 60, if I decide to retire early.  Doesn't hurt to have a safety net.

Congratulations on you marriage and name change.

In the USA the doctor that did my GCS had to fill out a form so I could get my 10 year passport as female.

Thanks for all your support, just a little update; It has been long winded getting the name changes done, still having a few issues, but today after over 2 months I have finally got my driving licence back and, I know it sounds silly, I was dancing around the living room with my card correctly name changed and gender changed. This is the first legal government document that not only has my name but my gender. An official woman. Other successes, most banks, voting registration, Tax man, directorships with companies house, and lots of vendors.

Remaining problems.
SKY who refuse to change the name without my deed of name change being legally certified (more later)
PayPal that would not change without an identity doc with my new name on, will now I have the driving licence that should be overcome.
Another bank that needed a doc, but with the driving licence being away for so long I need to go the 15 miles to the nearest branch again
Passport, cannot change that yet as I still have flights booked in old name so need to keep it until that has gone through
And finally STILL waiting for my new NHS number registering me as female

Back to the SKY issue, it is not that much of an issue to get the deed certified, BUT, the UK has an archaic system of publishing any court documents and in this case it would give my old and nee names and my address. I am unwilling to put myself to that risk for a utility supplier, as soon as the contact runs out I will cancel it and get a new contract in my name.

Nothing wrong with a little joyous celebration of making that hard earned goalpost.  Documents and IDs are hard to change, thanks to all the unscrupulous people in the world doing so for nefarious purposes.  Unfortunately, the innocent have to suffer, like us.  That red tape will always be there, but the pathway is starting to get less daunting.    As for SKY, it is a universal disorder that all public utilities are a pain in the buttocks to deal with.   You have accomplished so much!  Much Happiness and Love to you and your Loved Ones.

Happy Birthday Jessica!

I hope you continue to have success with the name changes. Even after four years I occasionally get junk mail with my dead name...

Love always -- Jessica Rose
