I would & I've sat through many court days. Most (that I viewed) did get their name changed. My mother didn't so she would have the same name as her other 2 kids, so I guess it all depends on how important that is to you.
I always used both last names during the marriage, although I never legally changed it.
Now I usually just use my maiden name in everyday life. But I admit I still use the hyphenated name when I'm on "mommy duty" at school, etc. 'cause I think it makes my kids feel better.
Keep your name like your kids....
I did not ... so that my duaghter and I still have same last name...also I have so many people/organizations to notify of a name change ...just did not want to go through the hassle...
