I am divorced with one child. I am undecided whether to keep my married surname so it is the same as my child’s or to change it back to my maiden name. People have told me it is harder to take your child on holiday if you have different surnames.
I am in the process of changing everything back to my maiden name my ex has demanded i stop using his surname name which is fine by me. I have 4 kids and between them they have 3 different surnames. When i go abroad i take their birth certificates with me just in case but not really had a problem, when you apply for their passports you put your passport number on it so they must all be linked in some way.
