Thanks for your question. Please remember to click ACCEPT once you get my answer.If they are your sons then by blood you are related and still responsible for them.As such it makes no difference what they change their name to, legally they are still your children and you are liable for payments.I am sorry if this is not the answer you are looking for but based on what you have said, this is the legal position. Please remember to click accept so that I am credited for my time. Thank you.
