Changing your name in divorce

In California, it is up to the wife to decide whether she wants her former name back in divorce (if she took her husband’s name).  The husband has no say and cannot ‘prohibit’ her from keeping the name.  The name change is one of the many issues in divorce that need to be taken care of once the divorce is final, and can be overlooked or deemed too much trouble, like estate planning and updating your life insurance, retirement beneficiaries, etc.  But these aspects of your life post-divorce are critical, and here is a great article about name change issues.
