Re: Name Change for a Minor in Mississippi
do you know who the father is?
ah, yes, I see you and the now legal father committed fraud and named him as the legal father. Regardless what you want to argue now, for legal purposes, he is the father. To change the child's name, you will most likely have to at least attempt to contact him. Unless the child is being adopted, your name is not HER family name. Judges tend to frown on backdoor adoptions like this. Why not have your current husband adopt the child?
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
