Not sure whether anyone can help but thought I would ask! I stiill use my ex-husband's surname - mainly because when we divorced I couldn't be bothered to go through all the rigmarole of changing back to my maiden name. My baby will take my fiance's surname and this is what will be on his birth certificate; however, I really don't want the "mother's name" section to show my surname as it currently (legally) stands, but neither do I want to change by deed poll to my maiden name before he's born as we will be getting married soon and I'll have to go all through the process of changing everything twice in short succession. I don't know what to do. Can I use my maiden name (which is obviously the same as that on my own birth records) even though I'm not legally known by it? Can anyone advise? Please?
