Maiden name back


#1

Not meaning to but in, and I hope I was informed correctly, but I was told by an attorney that you have to file a motion to ask for your maiden name back before going to court–it has to be requested or else you wont be allowed to get your name back—I’m from Martin County.

Dear pulling out and shortydowop:

Greetings. You need to answer the complaint and ask for your maiden name back in order to have the maiden name returned to you in the divorce order. You do not need a motion. Thank you.

Oh I forgot to mention - the answer must be written, filed, and done before the date of the divorce hearing (within thirty (30) days from service). Thank you.

What if you had your last name hypenated like Humphrey-Parker? Can’t you just drop the hynated part and just be Humphrey?

My husband (Henderson Co.) has served, on me (different county), an action for divorce just yesterday. I do not intend to contest the action but I do want to do what is necessary to go back to my maiden name. He is paying for the divorce. Could you please advise me on what I need to do and when.
Thank you so much,
Pulling out
