After the hectic and rushed marriage process, wedding and wedding excitement, and then honeymoon, many married couples forget or postpone some official procedures after marriage. However, these procedures must be followed to avoid problems. Because if some official actions are not taken, even fines are issued. Let's take a look at the official transactions you need to take care of after marriage.
Before the new identities came along, couples had to apply for identity renewal to change the marital status statement. However, there is no such obligation since the marriage status phrase was removed from the new chip IDs. However, newly married women have to change their identity cards after they get married to take their spouse's surname. Therefore, there is no set deadline for renewing identity after marriage. However, it is useful not to delay too much not to have problems in official transactions. For this process, you can apply to the civil registration offices with your current identity card, family card, one biometric photograph taken in the last six months, and a bank receipt showing that the value of the valuable paper has been paid.
How to Make Surname Transactions?
Brides-to-be take their spouse's surname unless they declare otherwise. Brides-to-be who want to continue to use their surname must say this by filling out the relevant form during the marriage application. Individuals who wish to use both the surname they used when they were single and the surname of their spouses should notify this with a petition during the new identity application.
Driver's License Renewal
Like with the ID, if married women change their surname, they must also renew their driver's licenses. Driver's license renewal procedures due to marriage are carried out at the civil registry offices. For this process, you can apply to the population directorate of your district with your current ID, health report, biometric photo, and bank receipt showing that the cost of valuable paper has been paid.
The passport renewal process, which must be done after marriage, is one of the most neglected issues by couples. Because, according to the law, the passport also serves as an identity and must carry the same information as the identity card. For this reason, if there is any change in the identity card after marriage, the passport must be renewed for the same changes. Do not neglect the passport renewal process if you do not want to experience a last-minute surprise while traveling abroad with your spouse. For this procedure, it is sufficient to apply to the population directorate in your district.
Change of Residence
It is a legal obligation to notify official institutions of a change of residence for any reason. Therefore, if there has been a change in your address after marriage, you must take the necessary official actions. You can change your residence at the new address by applying to the civil registration office, together with the water, electricity, natural gas, or telephone bill, or a rental agreement. A fine of 94 TL is applied to couples who do not report their changed residence addresses to official institutions within 30 days after the marriage.
Family Physician Change
If your home address has changed to another neighborhood, you should also change your family doctor. After the change of residence, you can go to the nearest health center and find out who your new family doctor will be. You can also easily handle your family doctor change procedures via e-Government.
Documents You Need to Submit to Your Workplace
For the surname change to appear in official transactions after marriage, you must notify your workplace where you work as insured. Businesses usually request a change of address form and a copy of the marriage certificate for this process.
Marriage Agreement Between Couples
One of the most curious issues about marriage is the 'legal property regime,' also known as the marriage contract, which concerns sharing property between spouses. This practice determines the participation regime in acquired property, such as property division or separation between spouses before or after marriage. If you want a property regime agreement, you can talk to your spouse and choose the "property separation regime," "shared property separation regime," and "property partnership regime" options that are appropriate for your situation. The property regime agreement can also be made during the marriage application or after the marriage.
