In the divorce process, the Family Court is authorized to allow a wife to be restored to her maiden name. If the maiden name is requested and taken in the Divorce Decree, the litigant need only show that the proposed name was in fact the maiden name of the wife and that the request to be restored to her maiden name is not made for any improper purpose, such as to avoid civil or criminal prosecution or to avoid the claims of creditors. If a request for name change is made outside of the divorce process, the procedural requirements are much more stringent and much more proof and data must be gathered in order to be restored to a maiden name.
