As a dedicated Saratoga Child Custody Lawyer, I am often asked how you can change your child’s last name to match yours.
- To change your child’s name to match yours, first file a petition in the Supreme Court and serve the other parent with notice of your petition.
- The court will not grant a petition to change a child’s name if the other parent is alive, can be found, and objects to the proposed name change.
- If the other parent objects, the court will not grant the petition.
Are you looking to change your child’s last name? Contact experienced Saratoga Child Custody Lawyer Jennifer Sunderlin Morton for guidance.
