Name change query

I've done a search but cant seem to find anything so far which answers my specific question, so....

My situation is that my girlfriend (American living there) will be applying for a working holiday visa 462 to come out here for 12 months which we will apply on Shore for a spousal visa 820. The issue is that we are both going through divorces now, and hers wont be finalised until she is out here (both Visa & passport under her married name). In her divorce papers she has the option of ticking a box which will revert her surname to her maiden name. This obviously has passport and visa implications seeing as we intend on her being out here when the divorce goes through. Her waiting till after her divorce to apply for a visa and new passport is a last resort.

So she can leave her surname as is (which doesn't really bother either of us) and get it changed later down the track or get it changed with the divorce and work out what paperwork is required. I can see that she would need to fill out a Form 929 or 1022 as well as apply for a new passport from the US.

I really don't know what would be the best approach...is it as simple (hard) as getting a new passport from the US and filling out the 929/1022 form and that's it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Luke
