-Could you explain your situation a little more?What do you mean by "legal implications"?
Are you asking if changing her name results in something automatically happening or giving you the right to do something?
When does child support terminate according to your court order?
Is health insurance mentioned?
Dar JACUSTOMER - This would not affect your will unless you change your will. Obviously she will still be your daughter and if you name her in the will she would still be the beneficiary regardless of her name. Women get married and change their names and it does not affect their inheritances.
Virtually all child support orders have some termination date and when the child support ends any obligation for health insurance would also. So it would be up to you whether to carry her on your policy after the support terminates and if there is nothing in the support as to maintaining insurance you can remove her at any time.
