A few weeks ago I got married, and was wondering if it is possible to change my last name to my new one. If so, what would I need to do to have this done and who would I need to contact?

I apologize if this is not the correct forum to ask, any points in the right direction would be appreciated. =)

This is indeed the correct forum for this question. The answer is that you'll need to contact Billing and Account Services. They'll probably ask you to fax in proof of the name change, such as a copy of your marriage license.

^^ This :)

Actually, Kaiith, you can submit the proper documentation via the Webform and save yourself a phone call to Account Services.

Webform: https://us.blizzard.com/support/webform.xml

Choose "Battle.net Account" as the product, "Change Account Information" as the category, and lastly "Legal Name Correction". Further instructions will be provided at that point.

Thanks Harly! And oh cool, that'll save the phone lines (and the Billing/Account rep on the other end) a bit of unnecessary trouble then, we'll do that. Thanks again! :D


Edit: well, one more question then. As proof of name change, would that be a copy of the marriage license or something else?

A copy of the marriage license should be sufficient. The Terms of Use form should outline what is acceptable and what is not.

This thread is from March and it is very unlikely that the OP will be back to see your non-constructive response. Please do not necro threads and be mindful of the posting date on them.

Yeah well what if you've been divorced for years and you don't have access to a fax machine? How then can you change your last name on your account?

Then you go to a copy shop or public library, where you could get access to a fax machine or a scanner.

And you really shouldn't necro old threads; for maximum visibility, please create a new one.
