My question involves name change laws in the State of: Wisconsin
My 13 yr old son wants to change his last name to my name. I am divorced from his dad, and we have joint custody, but I have physical placement. He does pay child support which is automatically deducted from his paycheck. My Ex has not contacted our son in any way (not by phone, mail, person, etc) in the past 5 years.
Would a court be likely to grant my son a name change (being that he wants to remove his dad's last name and change it to my last name)?
Thanks for any comments and advice.
