Changing Your Name after a Divorce or Marriage

Have you recently been divorced, married, or need to change your name for another reason? Divorce puts people through tough emotional strain. Once it's over, you may wish to make a clean start for yourself, whether professionally, personally, or both. Some people choose to take back a previous last name, change their children's last names, or take a whole new name following a divorce. If this is the case, call Keithley Law to get started gathering and presenting the necessary documents for a name change.

Pursue your legal name change painlessly with help from a Fairfax name change lawyer at Keithley Law. Call us now at (703) 454-5147.

Do You Want to Take Your Spouse's Name?

In many cases, couples who get married wish to share the same last name. This allows them to build their family together and communicates to others that they have joined in union. Although it is traditional for a woman to take her husband's name, there are alternative options available to you. The husband could take the wife's name or they could choose to hyphenate their names together.

When you change your name for any reason, you will need to notify parties such as:

  • Taxing authorities
  • Creditors
  • Banks
  • Post office
  • DMV
  • SSA
  • Schools
  • Employers
  • Insurance agencies
  • Utility companies
