Legal Question

Asked on: 10/30/13, 2:02 am

Is this true for some one married in Oklahoma and divorced many years ago with no change order on the divorce order. I now live in Texas.

There are no US laws that require a woman to take her husband's name nor use a legal process to restore her maiden name if that is not done during the dissolution of the marriage. All that is needed is to fill out the forms from the agency who should be notified (DMV, SSA, etc.) and use your marriage certificate (maiden name) and divorce decree (married name) to show you wish to restore your maiden name.Is this true?
