help do you allow child to change name Pypar - Piper

This is my stepdaughters name Pypar and she hates it she spells it Piper but mom won't let dad pay to fix it on the birth certificate. Dad has custody with mom having very limited access to the children (14hrs a month). I understand that is the name she put thought into and thinks is perfect but the child hates it. She says it is misspelled and mispronounced.

let her spell it the way she wants.. when she is old enough she can legally have it changed herself.

i know a girl whose name was Andrea (pronounce on-dr-e-ah) she cahnged it to Ondrea, and when she was old enough she had it legally changed

If dad has custody why is he letting mom stop him? If child wants it changed change it. It will effect her trying to get jobs and stuff long before she is. Of age to change it herself

With mothers consent a name change is a little over $200. Without concent it's $1500 because he will have to have an actual trial to plead the case of why you want it changed and why mom doesnt and we would have to serve her with the legal documents.

You are getting screwed over then. My mother changed my middle name when I was 7 and never had to notify my father(ncp)

Our bm changed my sdds last name and we didn't know about it till she came to visit!

How old is your SD? If she'd old enough, she should start campaigning her mother for approval, because she's the one who hates it (OK, I hate it too.) And seriously, let her spell it however she wants for normal, everyday stuff.
