Do you *have* to change your last name when you get divorced?

The kids usually keep the dad's name right?

  • My grandma got divorced in the 70s and still has her ex-husband's name. A lot of women don't change their names becuase of the extra hassle with the DMV and children's schools until they remarry if at all. It's a personal decision after all.

  • You don't have to change your name. A lot of women do but you don't have to

  • Nope. My mom and dad divorced when I was about 3, and she kept his last name. There was a little bit of court to go through however, but it could be different for others. My aunt also kept the last name of her ex-husband.
