Married Name Vs Maiden Name
name by association??
I am trying to find out some information on how to address the following; My ex has chosen to use her maiden name now that we have been separated (less than 1 year) and wont supply any documentation to confirm, she has said that she has a drivers license but this can be 'name change by association'. I don't believe if she was to walk into a bank she would be able to open a bank account in her name by association. Initiating application has been lodged with the court under the married name. What name do I use for her and will the orders/application abide to her as maiden name if it is under the married name? Her solicitor has been requested to adopt her maiden name, but not once have they referred to her by her first and last name.
Why should she have to supply you with documents to confirm she is using her maiden name?
You need to get over this. It is just a name. If you are that concerned maybe you can address her by both is. Jane Doe nee Smith.
