Changing Information


#1

Hello! I am writing to ask (what I hope is) a simple question. Am I “allowed” to change my name back to my maiden name before I am legally divorced? I am taking a new job and would like to start using my name and no longer be attached to his.

How does this affect health insurance and such? He is required, per sep agreement, to provide. Will my name change matter?

With gratitude, I thank you.

You may change your name prior to divorce, but the process is much simpler if you do so as part of the divorce. The name change will not affect the health insurance.
