I was unmarried when I had my now 5 year old son. I, of course, gave him my last name. Then a few weeks later we went down to the county office so he could sign the paternity acknowledgement form and be added as the father to his birth certificate. It wasn't until I tried to enroll him into pre-k last year that I saw his birth certificate has his dad's last name as his. This is something I do not remember agreeing to and find it as a complete shock. His social security card and medical insurance has my last name as his. He has only learned his last name as matching mine. I'm even married to a new man now and I kept my maiden name as my middle name just so my son and I still technically have the same last name. I want his name on his birth certificate to say my last name again. How can I easily make that happen? I'm in GA.
I'm not sure how daddy will respond to this if he even knows. He does semi-regular visits and has been his whole life. Will I need his cooperation?
