I am getting married to the father of my kids, but hes not on the birth certificate cuz at the time they were born, he wasnt around. How can i change their names to his last name?
Family Law Attorney
Contact vital statistics (or the birth hospital) and find out if it is still possible to have the father sign an acknowledgment of paternity. If so, the matter should be self-correcting; if not, you may have to do a formal name-change of minor children, which should not be difficult.
