Hi, my name is***** solicitor in Melbourne. Thank you for using Just Answer, and I will answer your question today, and ask various questions to narrow the issues in your post raised.

Ask Your Own Australia Law Question

Yes you will be able to sell the shares in the company even if there is a former name that you used. You just need to show that your name was changed, which can be done by birth certificate and then marriage certificate, and your legal right to transfer the ownership of the shares will be valid under a shareholders transfer contract.

If you need any further information please let know.

You can come back to this post any time to ask questions and there will be no further charges to you.

Don’t forget to rate me 5 stars as this supports me helping the community, and thank you for using Just Answer.
