My friend has three kids by her ex-husband. A few months ago, her ex husband killed himself. Now, her ex husband's mother (the kids' biological grandmother) wants my friend and her kids out of her life-And she wants them to CHANGE THEIR LAST NAME!
She says that she doesn't want them to have the same last name because it was her husband's name first, then hers, then her son...some crap like that.
Yesterday my friend got a letter from a lawyer saying that this lady is going to pay to have their last name legally changed, and this morning she emailed my friend with suggestions on last names!
Does my friend have to do anything? Can she just ignore this nonsense and get on with her life?

The MIL has know legal right to change her grandchildren's Last names..Unless she was there legal guardian..The mother can ignore this..I would call the MIL's lawyer and tell him "No thank you".
