Do I have to change my last name?
Bridgette D. Braun 08/23/2022 12:05 PM CST

I requested to change my last name back to my maiden name when I filed, but I've changed my mind.
I was wondering if I actually have to change it back. The divorce is final. I just don't want to deal with all the paperwork, and I have two children whose names I'd have to change as well to include my maiden name. Plus, I've had this name for over a decade, and it's who I am now, and I just don't want to change it.
