Q: My Daughter Has My Last Name, Her Father Wants To Add His Name Does He Have To Sign The Birth Certificate? I Prefer He Doesn’t.

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: February 3, 2020

Q: My daughters father doesn’t see her very much and to spite me hes going to try to take her away from me. He never really wanted her I have the proof on messages and its been hell but I am trying my best to co-parent even with the circumstances.

A: He does have the option of filing for paternity, but that doesn’t necessarily allow the child’s name to be changed. he’d need to commence a separate “name change” proceeding in civil court. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
