@navybankerteacher in California 30 years ago when he was 16 years old they didn't really ask questions or need any proof of who you are. You just walked into DMV filled out the paperwork and received your DL. 

REALLY?

 

When I got my DL over 45 years ago, I had to show a birth certificate.

I'm suspecting that she never legally changed it.  Just started calling him the different name.  He is fortunate that she is still living.  They might be able to get the BC changed if she writes an affidavit to the vital records dept (or whatever that state calls it) telling what was done.  but again, he still might have to go to court to get it changed.  EM

 

No, you cannot get the BC changed.  What you do is get a legal document changing the name.

OK, just incredulous that no proof of age or name was required.

We have decided to put off the cruise until we can get his documents corrected. I just wish we knew about this before I booked the cruise. I was so excited! Trying not to be too upset. Thank you everyone for your help and support.

VERY good plan.

 

Sorry about the delay, but the anticipation will make it even better. 😄

Did you lose all of your money?  You're cancelling two weeks out. I'm so sorry this happened.  

 

As for a marriage certificate, when I got married it dawned on me I could write in ANY last name I wanted to, not simply my husband's last name.
