Changing Your Name

Broward County Divorce Attorney

There may be a number of reasons why you may have questions about changing your name, especially when it comes to a divorce. During the stress of a divorce, however, you may feel uncertain about the changing your name. Many divorcees want to keep the same last name as their children. People who have an established name in their profession may not be so eager for a change either. As crazy as going through a divorce can feel, adjusting to life after a divorce can still be a hectic and busy time. Changing your name can be a huge decision, and understandably, it is one that you may want to take time to think about. If you have decided to change your name after a divorce has finalized, then you will need to take additional legal steps to attain this.

The restoration of a maiden name is something that can be taken care of within a divorce proceeding by the Wife requesting in her pleadings that the Judge restore the Wife's maiden name at the time of the Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage. Certified copies of the Final Judgment may be purchased the same day as the Final Hearing so that you may have your official documents re-issued, reflecting the restoration of your maiden name.

Name Change for a Low, Flat Fee

However, there are many instances where a Wife has decided not to revert to her maiden name at the time of the divorce, but decides that the time is right months or years later. You may spell your name differently than is on your birth certificate and want all of your financial documents to match up so that there is no problem at a later date. You may be known by a nickname to which you would like to change your name, or quite simply, you may just not like your name.
