Re: Luxembourg divorce finale
Thanks! makes sense now.
Does anyone know why the name change is from september 2019 and not immediately?
It could be that the legal process to change a surname takes that long. As far as I understand it, there is an act of 18 March 1982, which modified a grand ducal decree of 12 May 1945 article 10, which is relevant here: http://legilux.public.lu/eli/etat/leg/loi/1982/03/18/n5/jo
Couldn't find the relevant decree, though, but it can be found somewhere at Memorial.lu!
Anyway, the name change has to be formalized by a grand ducal decree and published in Memorial in due time.
