i live in california. i've been here my whole life. i'm 38 years old and recently divorced after 18 years of marriage. i would like to change my name back to my maiden name. i want to call my children by my maiden name and my married name. can i do that legally? i want to hyphenate it. is there any reason i can't do that? even if legally they are by his last name is there any reason i can't hyphenate the names the rest of the time? i don't want to sound redundant but i'm trying to make sure i'm clear. thank-you.
