Child Name Change

1 Child Name Change on Tue Apr 03, 2012 3:09 am


Arresto Menor
I was married last year. My wife had an illegitimate daughter before we married. The daughter bears my wife's maiden surname. My wife took my surname upon marriage. I would like to find the easiest route to change our daughter's surname to my surname (i.e., the family surname).

I searched and couldn't find any topics that bear directly on this situation. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance...

adoption is your best remedy. it will also raise her to the level of a legitimate child.

some others in this situation, the father will acknowledge and pretend to be the biological father and then the child is legitimated. the problem is that you become vulnerable to a charge of simulation of birth
