How can a father who pays child support and whose name is on the birth certificate change the child's last name to his if he and the child's mother were not married?
Answer - In most states, if the parents of a child are not married, then the mother is the sole "legal" parent of the child. Paying child support gives you no legal rights. Ch…ild support is not about anything other than helping to support a child whom you fathered. In my state, it does not even quarantee that you will get visitation rights. So, if you wanted to change the child's name - you should have married the mother!! . That is the mother's choice and ultimate decision.
The parents of a child are unmarried and the father's name is not on the birth certificate. The mother gave the child her last name. Does she have to change it to her father's last name?
NO. In most states the father of the child must be present at the time of birth to sign the birth certificate as the father of the child. It could, in reality, be any man who …would be willing to take legal responsibility for the unborn child. A child will only automatically get the father's name if the two parents are married. Even if the father pays child support, the mother is not obigated to change the child's last name to that of the father.
If the birth father has paid no support and has had no contact with the child for one year, the stepfather may adopt in most states without permission of the birth father. How…ever, this is still a legal process that requires a lawyer and court documents. The price can still range from $500 to $2000.. In PA you can't put a father on the birth certificate at birth unless he signs for it and fills out a admission of paternity (if mother is unwed). If he is not listed on the birth certificate he has no legal rights and you don't have to ask him for anything. Especially if he cannot prove he was there or active. And if you went to domestic relations for paternity/support and he didn't show or pay it's an admission and most likely be seen as "turning over" his rights.
To change the date of birth on your birth certificate you will have a long discussion to the court why do you want to change your birth date. There are some serious questions …that you need to answer before they grant your request, because that certificate is supposed to show the actual date, not just any date you would like.

The fathers name is not on the birth certificate does he have any rights to stop is stepfather from adopting him?
Possibly, if he sues for paternity and wins.
The parents of a child are unmarried and the father's name is not on the birth certificate The mother gave the child her last name how Does she change it to father's last name?
In my state, the father can have his name added to the birth certificate by going to the department of vital statistics and filling out paperwork. The mother also has to valid…ate it.
She can't. It's not "her" document to change. She can legally change her name on almost any other document but she cannot alter a birth certificate issued to, and belonging to…, another individual.
If a father also has parental responsibility due to signing of the birth certificate can a mother change the name of child without his consent?
Maybe. Do you mean instead of calling him Bob she calls him Bruce? I wouldn't see that consent would be needed.
If mother remarries and stepfather adopts the child and changes the last name on the birth certificate does the child become a blood relative?
The only way you are a BLOOD relative is if you have the same blood line. You can't change a persons biological parents. If the step father adopts the child, then the child is… by law their child and a family member, but not a literal blood relative.
Generally, you can change your name legally through a simple court process but your name will remain the same on your birth record. Name changes do not carry over to birth rec…ords.
While it is possible to change a child's birth date, it requires proof of some kind. Frequently this happens with kids adopted from overseas, whose actual birth dates are not …known. A "best guess" birth date ends up on the kid's papers, and sometimes later some more information comes to light (e.g. the kid's doctor says "Hey, this kid's not 4, he's 8!") and then the parents will pursue changing the date.
yes but while we are from 1-3 years only
Yes in the us and Canada , in Canada it's like 60dallars
no when someone gets a name change they get a second birth certificate, either one can be used in legal documentation but most companies, if they require birth certifricates, …prefer both.
What are the legal rights of a stepfather when mother is deceased and no father is named on birth certificate if the child was born during a nonlegal separation?
The step father has no "legal rights" in most jurisdictions and he must try to establish legal custody through the family court. State laws vary. If the biological father has …been in the child's life and had visitation, he may be favored if he wants custody of his child. There are many variables the court will consider and foremost will be the best interest of the child- whether the biological father has maintained a relationship with the child and whether it would be best to let the child remain within the family unit she is accustomed to. The step father should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues. See related question link.
Do you have to pay to change birth certificate if the mother of your child put the wrong name on it?
Yes if you want to have it changed you have to go to court and prove you are the father.
Can the mother change her child's last name if the fathers name is not on birth certificate and she wants her child to have another last name?
Please include your location when asking legal questions, as laws vary by state/country. Generally, she will be required to seek and obtain the father's permission for the nam…e change, or provide a very compelling reason why she shouldn't need it. Not having a legally named father for the child will complicate this process.
