Thank you for taking time on this..
I'd just wanted to ask about my niece BC. Her NSO BC indicates her surname using my sisters last name since she was never married and abandoned my her husband days after giving birth. My niece is already in High School and the school requires my niece to use the Fathers Surname because they would like to prevent issues in the future which I think is not. The school adviser said that since the father signed the back portion of the BC which was the acknowledgement part (it was notarized but my sister did not sign it) my niece should have use her fathers last name. Logically is irrelevant because as per the Name registered in NSO follows my sisters' surname. Should we file a complaint regarding this and what should we do about this..I already talked with the adviser but they still insist so and this have been traumatic to my niece since she has been using her moms name and she never met her father. I would greatly appreciate your response on this..godspeed.
