My question involves name change laws in the State of: MS. When my child was born I put my child in a persons name. I've been tryin 2 change the last name to mines since I left the hospital. He didnt sign the birth certificate & he isnt listed on it. We had paternity test & he is the father. I've filed 4 c.s. which he doesnt pay & he does nuthing 4 her at all. I've asked 2 lawyers bout my situation but they charge 2 much. I've looked on the internet 4 petiton form 2 file. My child doesnt even knw him at all.He pops up out of the blue til I stopped it. I wanna know will dis petition work, do I need lawyer, & do I need his consent?
