I have a daughter who is 13 and wishes for her last name to be changed to her stepfather's (my husband of 8 yrs).
I was never married to her biological father, and received sole custody of her 11 yrs ago, which was also the last time I have seen or heard from him.
As for child support I was in/out of court in PA for a 1 1/2 yrs, but if the father never showed they just keep pushing for another court date. The court date or judgment never came!
We live in Florida now. So my question is....Do I need his consent, or a signature? I haven't a clue where he is or if even alive.
Also I see all these name change forms on legalzoom.com or namechange.com..are these papers legal?
Can anyone give me advise?
