Question: My ex has decided that he would like to relinquish his parental rights. When we go to court and the judge allows this (he's been out of the picture for 10 yrs) will the child's last name change right then, will it go to my maiden name? I'm not sure who to ask any of these questions to?
Answer: You may want to review the article on this site about How to Change Your Name, which discusses changing the last name of a minor. You may also want to contact the Office of Vital Records in Arizona to discuss the process of amending a birth certificate.
