How can I change my son's last name?

Asked about 2 years ago - Bowling Green, VA

The father makes no effort to contact him and he has stopped paying child support. He will not sign his rights away and he has a record.

    Answered . You can petition the court to change the child's name. The father would be served with Notice, and he could appear in court and contest the name change or he may choose not to appear. If he does not object, a name change order will be entered.
