Hi Emily, what a great question & thank you for using the Carfinance247 Q&A. Firstly i need to establish whether you still have all your existing finance agreements (credit cards, loans, bank account etc) in your new or maiden name. Also have you updated your driving licence and passport to your new name yet? If everything is still in your maiden name then apply for car finance in your maiden name as you can change details at a later date including your new car finance agreement. If you've changed all your information then apply for finance in your new married name but explain to the finance company that you have just recently changed all your personal information as you've just got married. If you're half way through changing everything i'd get it all completed first before applying for car finance. I hope this helps you out a little. Kind Regards, Louis
