Question: when i married my second husban i still had my fiert husban´s last name what can i do to change it fron the marriage certificate since we wantto make ar double citizenship for ar daughter.and in the mexican consulate they told us that, it does not match my last name of my birth certificate.thank you.

Answer: Because you did not change your name back to your maiden name as part of the divorce process, you may need to get a court order.  Go to http://www.azcourts.gov/selfservicecenter/.  This is the self-service center for the courts which contains packets of do-it-yourself forms for very legal actions.  You will find forms and instructions for changing your name there.
