So, I am hoping someone can help me with my dilemma.
I was divorced about 9 years ago. At that time, I did not go to court as my ex handled everying. I was awarded my name change to my maiden name in the divorce. However, I never changed it back anywhere. I didnt even realize my name was changed in court until recently. So, I am using my previous married name for everything.
So, my current dillemma, I am getting remarried in about two months time. I have contacted the jurisdiction where we will be getting married and they said as long as I have my ID (old married name) and divorce decree I will be fine.
But this seems scary to me. It is a destination wedding and i dont want to be turned away. Would you change it prior with DMV, SS and whoever else? Or does it really mean nothing at all anyway since it was given back in court, but never changed anywhere else. This just opens up such a crazy, confusing can of worms...
I thought about calling an attorney but dont know if thats necessary.
Please help or offer advice if you know anything about this.
