Dear sir,
I have following queries:
1. I want to continue with my maiden name and surname post marriage.
2. Due to sudden demise of my father and me being the only child to my parents, I am staying with my mother to take care of her and will continue to stay here in future. i would like to know if i can continue the same address as my mother's?
3.My name was removed from my father's ration card and my in-laws have not put in theirs even after 1 and half yrs of it. can i put it back in my father's ration card as i m staying with my mother.
4.do i need to get an affidavit done for using my maiden address and keeping the maiden name.

I request you to kindly help me asap with the same.

Hi

You can read this article, it's permissible in Maharashtra. It's best to go and meet a notary public in your city and get an idea :

Marriages are made in heaven! But in love marriages when the two partners belong to different nations, castes, races, social strata, backgrounds, the amount of understanding required is more. I can tackle queries related to love marriages of these kinds. Sorry, I cannot help out on gay and lesbian relationships and am neither a sex therapist nor an astrologer.
