Changing Your Last Name After a Divorce

Although itâ€TMs becoming more common for women to retain their maiden names when they marry, most still take their husbandsâ€TM names, as it represents entry into a new family unit. Unfortunately, a divorce puts a legal end to that family unit, in which case a woman may no longer want to keep her former husbandâ€TMs last name as a reminder of her married life. If this is the case for you, you may be wondering how to revert to your maiden name after a divorce. 

Getting an Expedited Divorce in Illinois

Divorce does not need to always be a lengthy and complicated process. Couples who are willing to work together can often avoid litigation and navigate the process quickly and easily. Whatâ€TMs more, Illinois law provides for joint simplified dissolution of marriage under certain circumstances. This procedure is much faster and simpler than even the most straightforward typical divorces.
