Bureaucracy Awaits Caitlyn Jenner After Big Debut

A glamorous Vanity Fair cover served as Caitlyn Jenner's introduction to the world, but far more mundane matters await the Olympic champion before she can legally assume her new identity. Applications, affidavits, a background check, a possible court appearance and even a trip to the dreaded Department of Motor Vehicles with some decidedly less artful photography are in store for Jenner. The paperwork that will formally transition Bruce Jenner into Caitlyn Jenner is considerably less glossy and aromatic than the pages of the celebrity magazine that heralded her new identity on Monday, setting a Twitter record and sparking renewed discussion of her transition. Establishing her changed life officially will involve getting new identity documents, such as a driver's license, birth certificate and Social Security card, as well as changing bank and financial records.
