My question involves name change laws in the State of: Maryland
I am new to this forum but really need some legal advise. I have a 8yr old son that has his bioligical father's name. His biological father has never did anything for him more so never even seen him. On my sons birth certificate, it is my name only on there, Im not even sure why I even gave him his last name in the first place. Long story short, I recently just got married and my husband and been the "father" in my sons life period. Now that we are married, how can we change my sons last name to my husbands. I have read these other forums that stated you mst go thru the father but my situation is much diffent but my sons biological father is not around at all "and" never signed my sons birth certificate so all in all I have all the legal rights of my son period. Can someone give me some advise?????? Thanks!
