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
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.
Whatever the reason, a change of name is an important step, and one that
you probably want to accomplish as swiftly and affordably as possible.
