7 Questions Answered
Q. What is the proper procedure for changing my last name to something different after divorce?
A: The law allows you to go back to any former name when the divorce is granted. So if you have a previous married name, you can return to that name. If you have no former name other than your maiden name, you can still change your name to anything by filing a name change case. Basically, you say under oath that you aren’t changing your name for an illegal or fraudulent purpose and you publish notice of the name change in the newspaper. You can find a name change form with instructions here: https://oklaw.org/resource/adult-name-change-forms.
Q. On the divorce decree it states my ex can claim our daughter until no longer eligible. (Very loose language) however,
A: It really depends on the wording of your decree. The IRS has its own rules about which parent can claim the children on their taxes and they often don't care what a decree says. However, and this is very important, a divorce decree is an enforceable court order and disobeying it can put you in contempt of court. That can mean monetary sanctions and, in some cases, jail time. The best thing you can do is talk to an attorney in your area and at least get some advice on what to do. They may be able to help you modify the decree, so you can claim your daughter in the future. But get a licensed attorney to review the language and advise you before you do anything else.
Q. If I am a victim of domestic abuse and have been subpoenaed can I plead the 5th when asked to testify?
A: If you are asked a question and you believe the answer would implicate you in a crime, you can plead the Fifth. Unfortunately, however, victims of domestic abuse have no blanket right to refuse to answer questions when they have been subpoenaed. The Oklahoma Constitution and the Oklahoma Victim's Rights Act both give crime victims other rights, such as the right to be kept informed about the status of the criminal defendant's case and the right to refuse an interview request made by the criminal defendant or their attorney (but the victim cannot refuse to appear when they have been subpoenaed. You can find a list of your rights here: Constitution: https://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=84842 Statute: https://www.oscn.net/applications/oscn/DeliverDocument.asp?CiteID=459389 Your local domestic violence center can be a good resource to learn about your rights.
