Can Father Change Child’s Last Name?
Is it possible for the father of a child to have the child’s name changed to be the same as his? Paternity has been established post birth of the child, parents never lived together, father is paying child support and has visitation, child is living with mother, and mother would possibly disagree to name change.
Yes, it is possible to change the baby's last name to the father's. If a paternity action has been filed, it can be requested in that action.
