Can I legally change my son's last name to match my husband's and my last name without my husband having to adopt my son and still collect child support from my son's biological dad?

  1. Your child's name has nothing to do with whether you can get child support. However, you will need the father to agree to the name change.


  2. You cannot change the child's name without the biological father's approval, regardless of child support.
