Changing my last name


#1

I have been divorced for 2 years and kept my married name as my children did not want me to have a different last name. Now that my ex has remarried all of a sudden he is pressuring me to change my last name and threatening to stop paying child support if I don’t. I have asked each of my 4 kids and all all want me to keep my current last name as that is all they have ever known me by and again they do not want to have a different last name. Can my ex force me to change my last name? Can he stop paying child support if I don’t change it??

No, he has no control over your decision to keep your last name, and cannot stop paying support if you refuse.
