Not comfortable with companies copying my ID

When you request a name change, can you show your marriage cert/drivers lic/anything else and refuse to allow them to copy it? Or must they do this by law?

I think they want it so that it is on file so that they can cover their bums if someone challenges why the name change was done.

I work for a water corp and we require that we take a copy of the certificate in order to change a name so that there is a trail as to why we are changing a name and legally we would not be able to chase payment from someone who's name was incorrect.
