  • Check with an attorney. You may need to get permission from sperm donor if he is on the birth certificate. You will need to go to court to have it changed.

  • changing his last name won't do much, you need to have the man's rights terminated you will have to contact an attorney to do it.

  • If you were not married when the child was born technically the bio has NO right to the child unless you have gone to court to establish rights. Seeing as how this may be the case and he is in prison and has commited some rather serious criminal acts gettin ghis rights termintated will be no problem at all. As far as getting the last name changed, Contact your local department of children adn families/hrs/ welfare/ health department (im not sure where you are but any of these places will be able to help you.) it will cost you a small fee, Usually between 15-300 dollars, and you can then get the last name changed.
