My ex named my son when he was born, a horrible name that I hated. Let's just say Bartholomew was involved. So, I changed my sons name to something that I loved (Jack) after my ex and I got divorced. When I divorced I kept my married name, Morris, because I wanted to have the same last name as my son... NOW, my ex (the idiot) wants to change his last name, add a "Mc" to it, McMorris. So that would leave my son and I with Morris while his dad is McMorris (or my ex will change my sons name to McMorris too). But that would leave me as a Morris by myself.
My options... Change my name to McMorris (to be like my son), change my son and I's names back to my maiden name, or try to talk my ex into Not changing his name at all... OR, leave our (me and son) name Morris and let my ex just change his....
What would you do?
As you can see, I've already been through one name change with my son, I don't think we should again

Because of national security issues it is difficult to change your name. You have to have a court order for the name change to do things like get a driver's license. So that would mean you would have to go through the formal name change process with the court and it would probably involve a lawyrer, filing fees, and court fees. There would be fees for you and fees for your son. In order for your son's name to be changed the father would have to agree. It isn't a just go to court and it's done thing. You have to notify everyone you own money, put ads in the paper, and do other things. The easiest time to change your name is when you get divorced.
They spelled my name wrong on my divorce and I never noticed. Years later the DMV saw the error and said that is now my legal name and it will cost hundreds of $ to change. /span>

My son has had a lot of problems with his name. It used to be you could change your name by changing your ss card and never using your old name. My husband and I were legally separated at the time of my son's birth and the state added the father's last name on the birth certificate. I got his ss card with my maiden name and never used his father's name. He got jobs with no problems and his learner's permit. Then after 911 everything changed. They forced him to have his father's name on his driver's license. It hasn't caused problems with ss or the IRS but it causes problems when he has to have ID. Recently his car was stollen and recovered. He couldn't get it from the impound lot because his license said one name and the title, registratiion, and all his other things said another. He has never met his father but his father told me in court he will never let him change his name.
