in most states as long as he is still on the birth certificate and has rights, you need his permission to change his last name... :-/

He will have to sign the paper saying he gives you permission. I just went through the same thing. I have full custody and he has no visititaion and i still had to get him to sign the paper giving me permission to change his last name. and my son doesnt even have his sperm donors last name he has my last name i was changing it to my SOs.

You need his permission.



If he doesn't give it to you, you can go to court to have it changed.

He isn't on the birth certificate. The father's part is empty. The only reason my son has his last name is because I put his last name in the baby's name part of the birth cert.

Look up the laws in your state. I have to have bd consent or he as to be absent for a year. No child support, calls or anything.

What if there is no way of contacting him at all? which there isn't and hasn't been for almost a year.

then you can petition the court to terminate his rights based on parental abandonment!
