a person should use only the name stated on his birth certificate. your remedy is to file a petition in court for change of name. in my opinion, however, with the revilla law on names of illegitimate children, the court may not agree to change the name of the child.

to be honest i'm not sure how the court will decide when a mother asks that the name of the child be reverted to hers, and i find this to be what's wrong with the revilla law. originally, it was supposed to be that an illegitimate child will use the name of he mother only, but but if the father acknowledges at the time of registration, the father's last name will be registered, and there will be no changing it without a court order.

i prefer the procedure for later acknowledgment. the mother's surname is first registered as the child's last name. upon later acknowledgment, the birth certificate is merely stamped that the child is authorized to use the father's surname. that way, i believe the child can still have a choice which name to use.

the father has to file a case to impugn the legitimacy of the child. and can only do so before 1 year from the time the birth certificate was filed.

maribelle, that is not relevant. if the period has expired, he is barred from doing so.

pima, that depends on the law of the place you are going to. better ask your fiance to inquire with an immigration lawyer
