Does a legal name change have to be filed when taking a spouse’s name or resuming use of a maiden name following a divorce?

  • In case of marriage, no. A copy of your marriage license will suffice. In the case of a divorce, usually the use of a woman’s maiden name is granted in the divorce
    decree. If so, a certified copy of the divorce decree is the only documentation needed.

  • If not, the party in question has two years to amend the divorce decree. After two years, the party in question must go through the name change procedure.

A legal separation is a process that some couples may opt for instead of ending their marriage, and this could be for various reasons due to financial, religious,
etc. A legal separation means you are separating from your spouse, living apart, but still married. Couples seeking this, must live separate and apart, and one of
them must be an IL resident for at least 90 days.
