When you divorce, a lot of things change. Although you are not required to return to your pre-marriage name after your divorce, some people prefer to do so as part of the healing process. Some divorcees, on the other hand, prefer to preserve their married name so that it is the same as their children's.
Your ex-spouse has no influence in whether or not you alter your name as part of your divorce. If you can show that changing your children's names is in their best interests, you might be able to do so.
Whether you choose to revert to your maiden name, pick an altogether new name, or remarry, changing your name after a divorce can be a symbol of a fresh start for many women. Changing your name during the legal process of divorce is also pretty simple, as you only need the judge's approval and a little paperwork to get started. However, once your name change has been granted and verified, you must notify a variety of organizations, businesses, and other entities of the change.
