You want to change it but you MUST do what is legal in your state so you don't get sued or land in jail. Be smart and get a free consult with a lawyer. If you ever want child support the courts might insist on his last name. The lawyer would know.

in our state you have to have a paternity test done to prove who is the father. then you need permission from the father to not be on the birth certificate

you dont have the legal standing to make that decision and cut him out . he is her father and has rights.

You'd have to go through the courts & have good reason. I have a friend who jist went through this. Her childs bio-father had to sign off his rights first. And like a pp said. Unless he allows it, you can't just make the decision to cut him out of your childs life.

Unless he decides he wants to. In the eyes of the law, he can request a paternity test. In which case he will be on the birth certificate & there's nothing you can do about it. My ex did it to me. He fell off the face of the earth when ds was 2. But his name is on the bc & he didn't sign it either. It's not as cut and dry as you want it to be. Sorry hun.
