1 How Can I change my Son's Surname after me on Tue Jan 03, 2012 10:57 am

Dear Pinoy Lawyer,

How can i change my son's surname? He is legitimate child from my previous marriage as I am already annulled.

He is using his father's surname and I want to change it after my name. Tutal,wala na kaming balita or communication sa kanya.

Eversince po kasi hindi ko naman ginamit ang surname ng ex husband ko. So for me and my son to have the same surname, i would like sana to change it.

Pano po ang procedure? Thanks a lot.

what was the basis for annulment? if psycho incapacity, then he remains to be a legitimate child and required to use the father's surname. you can gamble on a petition for change of name, but be prepared if the OSG will oppose.

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
