This query is : Resolved
Dear Experts, My wife has adopted my surname after marriage. I got my surname added to her name through central gazette. After that, We Registered our marriage under Hindu marriage act. The marriage certificate bears her name with my surname as well. My query is 1. will she have any problem while doing any higher education or private sector job with her new name. 2. Can we buy joint property now with her new name without any fear?? 3. Will she face any problem in future in inheriting my wealth including mutual funds, epf, ppf etc if I nominate her with her new name. Awaiting your kind opinion. Thanks .
