I recently got divorced and I have a felony but I want to change my last name back to my maiden name can I do that?
Your divorce judgment should allow you to resume the use of your maiden name. However I have changed the practice area to criminal law in case attorneys who practice in that area know of any legal restrictions against this for someone with a felony conviction.
