You can apply for yourself, or for your spouse.
What you need
Your ID card and appendix.
Your spouse's ID card – when updating a marriage.
Your Israeli passport (if you have been issued one).

When updating your marital status, you can choose a new family name.
If you decide to change your family name you must apply in person at the authority offices, and follow the instructions according to the Choosing a Name service.

How to apply
Print and fill in the Change of marital status form and submit it in person at your local Population and Immigration Authority office.
When you update your marital status in the population registry, you will be issued a new ID appendix.
