    Default Changing My Daughters Last Name

    My question involves name change laws in the State of: alabama

    my daughter carrys her bio fathers last name, however he and i were never married or really had a relationship with each other. he did sign the birth certificate, and pays in on child support so hes somewhat in her life. i have married and now have a family of my own and we wanted to change my daughters last name so that she will have ours now-can i do so without her bio dads permission?

    Not a chance.

    You need either Dad's permission, or permission from the court. You will need to show why the name-change is in her best interests. Matching yours and stepdad's is not a good reason.

    What you are thinking is loosely termed a "backdoor adoption".
