    Stop Ex-Spouse Using My Last Name?

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Wisconsin

    How do I go about getting ex-wife to stop using my last name?

    Offer her lots of money. You cannot legally force her to change her name.

    I only quoted to give extra emphasis to the fact that it's HER name.

    Might need to go one step further. I offered my friends a cash bonus if they were able to find someone to marry my ex-wife before my alimony ended. OP could do the same thing.

    but she can keep her name...in fact, just to be an arse, i'd have the guy change his name to MY name so we BOTH can run around on "his" name.

    And how do you also plan to stop every other person on the planet who also has the same last name from using "your" name?

    Absolutely not!

    I had nothing but her future marital happiness in mind.
