My question involves name change laws in the State of: oklahoma
Im not actually sure if this question goes here but since is does have to do with a last name i figured its the best spot.
Currently i am 6 months pregnant. My boyfriend and i agreed to take my last name once we ever do decide on married. However i know him and he changes his mind. Well im not sure if and when we ever will get married. To me its just a paper. We have been together for almost 4 years.
But i do know that no matter what i want the baby to have my last name. Can i as the mother put his name on the certificate as the father but tell them to have the baby as my last name? I mean i know it can be done but what if the father is sitting there saying no i want the kid to have my last name? Does he have the same right to decide i mean i know technically but legally whose decision is it?
Would they make us sign on it or is the mother no matter what got the say or what?
