  • changing baby's last name Kentucky

    how do i go about doing this? my son was born on march 8, 2010. i gave him his father's last name because we were together and thought we were getting married. two days ago, the father dropped a bomb on me saying he's not happy, so we are no longer together. what types of things would they ask? how much does it cost? is my son too young to change his name already?

    Is he the biological father? If so, then he deserves to have his fathers last name.

    It makes his life so much cleaner, even though his parents do not get along today.

    Get along where the child is concerned. You have a lifetime of connection to the father now. File for child support, and custody rights. The father deserves to be able to see his son, and the child deserves to know his whole family.

      i don't believe that someone who walks out on a one week old baby and his mother deserves to give the child his last name. he is not going to see my son at all, and i don't believe he wants to.

        It is not about you or him. It is about the child.

        The child deserves ADULTS for parents.

          Your first step must, by law, be to serve dad with notice that you are filing a name change petition.

          IF Dad is in agreement, the name can be changed very easily.

          However, if Dad does NOT agree, at this stage it will be virtually impossible to get a Judge to order the change over dad's objections.

          So, ask Dad how he feels about the name change BEFORE you even file.

            my son's father and i are both adults. i feel like it would be in his best interest to have my last name. he doesn't need to have a huge stamp like this screaming "my father is a deadbeat!".

              Up until 2 days ago, you did not have a problem with him.

              Both of you need some time to think about things. He is obviously scared about growing up.

              If I had him here, I would give him a swift kick in the pants, but as it is you need to take things slow. Don't do anything in a hurry that you will regret later.

                First, your child is not quite 2 weeks old.
                Second, you do NOT have a court order for CS.

                So, until there is a court order for CS and dad does not pay, nor see his child for at least 1 year or more, he cannot be called a "deadbeat".
                Besides that, have you EVER seen any child that you can tell has a "deadbeat" parent simply by looking at them, or thier last name?

                What you should do, since you are saying that your son's best interests come first, will be to file immediately for a custody and CS order.

                Once you have that and some time passes without any CS and without Dad seeing his child, then you might have a chance at getting a court order to allow a name change against Dad's wishes.
