My question involves name change laws in the State of North Carolina for minors:
My 14 yr old stepson holds the surname of my wifes X. As it turns out, the X was not the father but was listed as the father on the birth certificate. This person has never had a significant role in my stepsons life, even when it was beleived that he was the biological father.
My stepson wants to change his surname to his mothers maiden name which I wholeheartedly and lovingly support. This has been an ongoing discussion between him and his mother and I for several years. He holds a bit of disdain for the surname he holds now and we would love to help him to accomplish his goal.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
