Default Do I need to replace BRP if I change my title?

Hello.

I have recently got married. I am not changing my surname. I have BRP version ILR.
I understand I need to change my BRP card if I change my name (due to marriage etc).
What about title? When I applied my ILR last time I applied with Miss.

I just checked BRP replacement online application and it asks me my name in the current BRP card. It has three sections (title, given name, family name)under 'Name' category.
Also, another section for new name (it has also three sections too).

I am wondering as my title has changed to Ms and I am no longer Miss (I am not changing my surname). Do I need to replacement BRP card? BRP card doesn't show title but I guess it may has my title in their system. Or at least I need to fill Change of Circumstances form??

If anyone knows please help me.
Thank you.

We were told you're legally entitled to use both names.

As far as I understand once you go changing the name of the passport, you need the name changed on the BRP too.

To keep things simple for the visa, we've just kept things in my wife's maiden name, including her passport, BRP, bank statements etc. So even though we are married, she still has "Miss FirstName MaidenName" on all her documents and application, and the visa people have been fine with that.

Once my wife eventually has citizenship we intend to gradually change documents and accounts over to her married name.

Ms and Miss have no legal standing..... they are interchangeable. In this day and age many people call women Ms whether or not they are single or married. People don't know if you are married or not and use Ms.

No need to change the BRP
