Changing a Child’s Last Name in Divorce
My (soon-to-be) ex-wife is changing my sons name in school (and who knows where else.)
If you have an attorney, speak with your attorney to address this issue. Your son’s name remains as it was (he keeps your last name) unless there is an application to court seeking to change his name. If you do not have an attorney, you need to either consult with an attorney or address this issue yourself in court. If a divorce action is pending, you will have to address this with the Supreme Court judge by filing a motion. If there is no divorce action pending, you can go to Family Court.
