Name Change After Divorce
Are you changing your name after a divorce?
A name change after divorce is legally executed by your divorce decree document. It is official notice of your name change if you have chosen to give up your ex-husband's name.
Some women keep their married name. Why would they decide against a name change after divorce? Usually so they will have the same last name as the children of the marriage. They may also choose to keep their married name because of a professional reputation that they have developed under that name.
Be sure to include your desire to change your name (if you do) on your divorce agreement.
If it's left out, you will most likely have to undergo a seperate process to then have your name changed. So be certain that one-line statement about your name change is in the decree.
For any name change, it is imperative that you change your name on your other important documents such as your social security card, driver's license, passport and any other legal contracts with an Amendment to Contract Form.
Additional important offices that need to be notified of your name change in a timely manner are:
Social Security Administration to change your name on your social security card.
Your Health Insurance Provider.
Department of Motor Vehicles to change your driver's license and vehicle title and registration.
U.S. Department of State to change an existing passport.
