In many marriages, typically the Wife has taken on the last name of the Husband. In a divorce, the Wife has the opportunity to revert back to her maiden name. However, I am often asked in the Husband can force the Wife to stop using his last name and force her to go back to her maiden name.
The answer is “No”. The Wife, is she chooses to do so, may keep her current last name and does not have to go back to using her maiden name.
