1 Change name of child on Sun Dec 16, 2012 6:23 pm


Arresto Menor
Hi, my husband and I are already separated (informally) and I was wondering if there is a way where I can change my child's birth certificate? I was planning on removing the father's name in the birth certificate and my child to use my name instead of the father's. This may be harsh but I don't want to have anything to do with my husband and I wouldn't want him to have access on the savings that I am putting up for my child. Thanks.

no, this cannot be done. legit children are required to carry the surname of the father.
