We are in the process of working on a Separation Agreement that has been drawn up by my lawyer. Can I include verbiage in there about allowing me to take my maiden name back when we sign this document, or do we have to be actually divorced for me to be able to do so (since we may stay separated for awhile due to my need of medical benefits). I would LOVE to be able to revert to maiden name while still separated.
Also, although unlikely, IF I do decide to KEEP my married name AFTER we divorce, does that mean that anyone that my (then) ex-husband would marry in the future CANNOT have his last name? Or doesn’t that make a difference?
