My daughter, who is now six has not seen her father for going on 3 years now. He pretty much has nothing to do with her or i, but has his last name. Im wondering if I should change her last name to mine. Maybe it would be easier for school purposes and I figured that since she has NOTHING to do with him or his family: I should change it. Am I right, or should i wait until she is older to decide for herself???!!!!????

Some of you are so selfish for YOUR reasons. You aren't happy with him, so take the name away. My mom did this to me, and as an adult it caused lots of problems. My advice it that you pursue something with him for her. She will respect that in the far, far future. As young girls, we are entitled to understand and have the opportunity to know our fathers, even when they are not good ones (unless abuse is involved). Don't make mistakes now, that suit your needs and feelings, that your child may disagree with later. Let her make changes when she is able to understand. I am telling you---get child support and try to give her a chance to know her other family. She will look later, and if you helped and it does not work out, she will not have issues later.
