It depends on a lot of factors to whether or not you should or do. If you have been married for a long period of time and/or children are involved then it is better to keep your married name. I kept my married name for several reasons but the main two were the children and we had been married for 17 years.

My lawyer asked and I said to go ahead and change it back to my maiden name, but 10 years later, I still use my ex-husband’s name (except to vote) because I don’t have to spell it like I always have to do with my maiden name.


No “shoulds” about it. It is a divorced woman’s choice. Sometimes expense is involved if she is a professional and has licenses to change.

In my case, I will keep the name as it is my sons’.

If you have children, you might want to keep their last name. But, otherwise, it is a personal decision that only you can make.


It’s up to you. I got divorced and took my last name back. So it’s up to you.

I kept my married surname because I had younger children still in school.

I would because that is the last name of my children.
