Hi atty,


my son is using his biological father's surname(my ex boyfriend). Im getting married soon( to a different man), is it possible to have my son's birth certificate corrected after i get married since my maiden name is whats indicated in his birth certificate. I was hoping to have my married name indicated in his birth cert as his mother while i am working with the adoption. I've read in one of the forums here that the only way to change his surname is thru adoption and im going to take care of it after i get married.

more power and god bless

your lawyer can allege abandonment in the petition for adoption. the bio father has to be informed of the proceeding. even better if you can get his consent for the adoption.

Hi again atty,

If ever i'd be able to get a consent from my son's biological father for the adoption, what would now be the procedures in the adoption? Would i still need to file something in court? And if i still do, will his presence still be needed?

Thank you

Do you know where the biological father is?
If so you can tell him it's GOOD for him if the child is adopted Smile because then you can't demand him to pay anything for the child.

The biological father have to agree to adoption
OR he can't be found in long enough time (I have forgot how long time, but it's at least several months.)

The rest I don't know.
