    Default Changing Child's Last Name On Birth Certificate

    My question involves paternity law for the State of: California

    My ex-boyfriend is my son's legal father but not his biological father. We didn't know this until we took a home pregnancy test when my son was about 3 months old. My ex wants nothing to do with it and that's fine with me. I don't know who the biological father is, so I want my son to have my last name. How should I go about doing this??

    Your son is presently how old? Your ex-boyfriend wants what to happen?

    My son is 7 months old now. My ex-boyfriend wants his name removed from the birth certificate.

    When I said pregnacy test, I meant paternity. Sorry.
