Getting your name back from a divorce can be a major headache. My cousin got divorced and it seems like there was nothing in the divorce decree that said she got her name back. How dumb is that? She finally had to go to the office with a copy of her birth certificate and her divorce decree to get them to change her name. She may even have gotten a judge's order saying she could have her name back.
That makes zero sense to me, but I know she had to jump through a bunch of hoops to get her name changed on her Social Security card.
