I am currently going through a divorce. My husband had his Lawyer draw the divorce paper. They are ready to go, simple easy with no strings attached, but there is nothing in the papers about changing my name back.. I wanted to add a page to petition to drop my married name. I have no Idea how to word it.. I have googled it but it is in form format. I was hoping I could get a simple paragraph in legal terms for this petition. Also does this page need a place for the Judge to sign it?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am in GA, but I was married and my husband lives in TN. TN is where the papers where drawn up and where the divorce will be final.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: not yet. I just received the paper work a week ago.. Im just waiting to send it back because I want to make sure that I can legally drop my married name and not have to go thruogh a name change after the fact.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: nope, Just a how to word the name change and if this page will need a place for the Judge to sign it.
