As a divorce attorney in Texas, I often field questions about name changes during the divorce process. One common question is whether a wife can be forced to change her name back to her maiden name during a divorce. The answer is no – a wife cannot be forced to change her name during a divorce.

There are many reasons why women choose to continue using their married name after a divorce. The most common reason is that they want to have the same last name as their children. If you are the husband and it is important to you that your ex-wife no longer uses your last name, you can try negotiating with her during the divorce process. This means that you may need to give her something that she really wants in exchange for something you really want.

If you have any questions about name changes during divorce or any other divorce-related matter, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’m here to help Texas families with divorce and child custody matters, and I’m happy to provide guidance and support during this difficult time.
