Can You Take Your First Husband’s Last Name in Your Second Divorce in Texas?

, ,

Most people understand that women can change their last name to their maiden names as part of a divorce in Texas. However, what if the woman was divorcing her second husband and wanted to go back to her first husband’s last name? (She’s requesting this so that she shares the same last name as her minor children.) In this video, I explain the Texas family code and how this woman can get what she wants, even if it’s not part of her divorce.
