Find answers to your legal question.





If I want to legally change my child's last name & take the father off the birth certificate...?

Would I file a petition with the circuit court in the county that we live or in the county that he's born. & do I even file it with the circuit court or somewhere else!?

Only way you can do that is if the Father agrees to sign the petition to give up his parental rights.

There is NO mechanism for removing a father from a birth certificate. God, it's bad enough selfish, childish woman not PUTTING the father on the BC, but to remove seems like the most idiotic idea yet. Parentage is a biological FACT, it is not something that a vindictive mother does to punish the father. Her chance to decide who the father was was BEFORE she slept with him. Laws vary on name changes, but in most situations, once named a child may not be renamed without both parents agreeing.

Yes, why not consult a real family attorney about your options. Or try "free legal aid" - there are offices everywhere.
