Change of surname.
It's been nearly 3 months since my OH left because he wanted to be single again and wanted a divorce. I saw my solicitor who advised me not to start divorce proceedings as OH is still paying the bills (mortgage paid). He also said as OH wants the divorce let him start the ball rolling so thats what Im doing. I dont want my married name anymore and want to revert back to my maiden name. I've just phoned the solicitors and it wil be £100. I've looked online and there's several places that do change of name by deed poll. Im wondering if these are trustworthy. Any thoughts on this please?

You can call yourself what you like provided its not with intent to break the law. If you have your married name on a passport or other legal doc apart from the marriage cert itself, then you will need to keep a copy of your birth cert with the doc, you may want to change stuff like driving licence and passport but there is no need for deed poll.
