My daughter's father and I were never married and he ended our relationship when I became pregnant. Her last name was my last name for the first two years of her life until he sued me for 50/50 custody, then the court hyphenated it when the 88/12 custody order was put into place. I'm going to be getting married in the next year and don't want her last name to be hyphenated as my maiden name.
Would the judge even consider granting me the removal of the hyphenation so her last name and mine would be the same?
