I (new father) adopted our daughter when she was an adult. My wife is the biological mother. There was no name change in Indiana. My question is the birth certificate came out this way? Not sure if it is correct or what problems it might cause if any. The name now states first name(original), middle name(original), my last name( new fathers last name), daughters married last name. Is it suppose to be like this. The decree states all correct facts. Not sure if it is right I know attorney end is correct. Will give example
Mary(first name) jojo(middle) Jackson(adopting fathers last name) Gayle (current married name)
Mary jojo Jackson Gayle. Thank you
I think it should state her maiden name, which wiukd now be yours and not her married name. If she gets divorced and wants to ho back to her married name, eho would that be?
