Customer Question

My ex-husband has just found out I have met someone else. He is sending me barrages of messages insisting I change my surname back to my maiden name, that he doesnt want me having anything to do with him or his name and that he has already sought legal advice on this and is seeing a solicitor next week. What is my position?

Hi, thank you for your question. In relation to the change of name, he cannot force you to change it back to change it back to your maiden name and even after divorce you can continue using your current surname if you wish. He would be entitled to seek a divorce if hr can show there has been unreasonable behaviour from you towards him.
