I live in Alberta and my current last name is linked to my business and of course shows up on my taxes. I have 2 concerns.
1. I dont want to have to change ALL my information to accommodate the new name especially when it comes to my business plus all my diplomas are in my maiden name
2. I dont want my ex knowing Im married and we have to exchange taxes each year. He is high conflict and Id rather him not know because he is a trouble maker
Another issue is my maiden name is long, 9 letters long, my married name if I choose it is 8 letters long. If I hyphenate it will be huge and there wont be enough space on forms hahah. I dont know if you hyphenate if you can just use both names independently either.
Any help is MUCH appreciated!
