Asked in Divorce for New York

Q: Can you please tell me some answers because no body I talk to can anwser me

I am legally married about 3 years now, but I was going through a safety issue with my daughter so we both had got our names legally changed but not to my husband's last name, our identities are completely changed legally except our socials, so does that mean I am still married or divorced even though the name I had married under is changed to a different name now.???!?

A: Yes, you are still married until a divorce proceeding is filed and completed. Name changes are irrelevant to your marital status. Contact me if I can be of assistance: ##konstlaw
