We are in Massachusetts and it looks like the custody agreement is heading towards my ex wife having sole physical custody and then we will have joint legal custody. I've heard that she wants to change our children's last names to hers. I'm trying to figure out if she needs my permission to be able to do this if I have joint legal custody. This is something I don't want to happen and I'd like to know the best approach to deal with it. Thanks!
