My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.Sorry...I do not understand the question...you want to change the child's name but the other parent does not agree?
ThanksThere are two ways to approach
By far the easiest is if he (father) agrees to the change. IN that case you head to the court, talk to the clerk of the court, get the form for name change, have dad sign, you sign and file with the court. Easy.But if dad is not willing to sign off?Then it is complex...you would need to file a motion with the court and present evidence to the court on why this change is in the best interest of the child...and for this you would need to hire an attorney.But if dad is willing to sign off? This is easy
