Arresto Menor

I married other man and i have a son before our marriage. Unfortunately the surname of my son is from his biological father who is not supporting him financially etc. Now I am planning to have a late registration to change my son's surname into my husband's name now.
He is already 3 years old right now. Am I going to be sued by his biological father by changing my child's name?

Please enlighten me.

Don't do that. You will only make your son's life complicated.

If your first son is an illegitimate child, you and your husband can jointly adopt him. After that, your son can use the surname of your husband. But you have to get the written consent of his biological father.

If you need further legal assistance, you may send a direct email to

Best regards,
