I also need to add a key lock to the sliding glass door. They all need to be the same key.
How easy is this?

any decent hardware store should be able to do this for you.

I had my front and rear deadbolts re-keyed with the same key at Home Depot (I bought the locks from them...dont know if they will do used locks)
The guy had a nifty little "re-keying" kit...looked pretty easy.

Do you need to do this because of a divorce?

VERY simple.

Congrats on the new house.

The re-keying is pretty simple.

As stated above, you need rekeying kits for the deadbolts.

Are the deadbolts all the same manufacturer? If so simple. If not. Your screwed.

Home Depot will rekey them for you. They charge $3 or $5 a cylinder. So if you have a double cylinder deadbolt, double the price.

Or you can upgade and buy better locks... Just make sure the codes on the back match, all the keys will work.

ETA: Burn the boxes so someone won't get your code.

Check out the Primus series of locks. I got mine as a wedding present form a locksmith buddy.
