    Default Name change after filing for custody

    I filed for a modification of visitation and custody recently and it is to be continued on March 16. I wanted to know if I could file for a name change for my daughter before that time because she is 6 years old and would like the last name of my husband,who has been raising her since she was a year old, me, and her new brother. Could I just bring this up when I go to court or do I have to file papers?

    Unless your ex- consents to the name change, you will have to bring a motion before the court.
