My question involves name change laws in the State of: Georgia
I want to change my sons name for his safety. My ex has already abused and tried to kill my son when he was a baby. My son is 6 now my ex has no legal rights and is not even on the birth certificate. I had to move from NJ to GA to protect my sons life. I have been down here a year now and want to change his name to protect him from my ex and his drug dealers. I am on disability right now but this needs to be do. My last name is the only last name he know. Can this be done with out a fathers consent and what do I need to do?
