I have a father that is not that great of a person. I have his last name and I want to change it. I put up with him when I was little for years but now im older and I don't want to. I have stood up to him because i'm now thirteen. So now I want to get my last name changed. I didn't tell anyone in my family that I want to do this because I want to be independent and do it on my own. I don't know how much it costs and I don't know the first thing about changing my name. I need help to get this done. If you can help and have information or links on this name changing subject please post it and let me know. Thank you for your time, help, and support.
