Re: Circumstances to Change Child's Last Name
Unless the name is a well known name, the fact the crime was based in state or federal law is not going to make any difference. It's not like if I heard the name I would go "Oh ya, that's the guy that did [whatever]."
You can try. The father can protest. The judge will make the decision.
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.
