Question: My question is the father of my child wasn't there when we signed the birth certificate so my daughter doesn't have his last name. How can I add him to the birth certificate and add his last name to my daughter?
Answer: If your child is less than 90 days old, you can change her name by both you and the father signing an affidavit. If she is over 90 days old but less than a year, an additional evidentiary document is required. You can find the forms you need on the Arizona Department of Health Services website under the Vital Records section. www.azdhs.gov/licensing/vital-records. If your daughter is more than one year, you will need court order. The forms to get a voluntary paternity order are available on the Superior Court's website. Go to www.azcourts.gov. Click on the county where you live. Go to the self-help center. Look under the family law section and you will find paternity. The forms are there.
