I am married and have 2 kids from a previous relationship and theirdad agreed to let me hyphenate our kids names to my married name so that we will all have the same name and me and my dh are on our 2nd baby together. Does anyone know how it works? I know I need to get ahold of vital records but what would I say and go about doing it. I live 15hrs away from our home state do to my dh being in the military.

you mean to get it changed legally?
My first question tho, not be nosy, is how old are the kids..old enough to understand?
And if they are, do they want it hyphenated?

You dont have to legally do it if you dont want to...you can just simply start adding the new name.

My mom kept changing my name when she would re-marry...eventually when I got to be working age, legally I had to start using my birth cert. name...which I had never in my life used! This was weird...So I ended up hyphenating it with her hubbys name...eventually, since her hubbies last name wasnt even legal, i dropped it, and went with my MAIDEN name..until I got married.

I am on my fourth last name!

So in my op....even tho u did not ask...I think kids should keep there legal name!

Oddly enuf, my hubby, his sister, and his mother all have different last names!

My kids are 9 and 6 and me and my hubby have been together for 3yrs. My son has his bf name and my daughter has my maiden name bc he left me when I was pregnant with her. So, they are real siblings with different last names.

They do understand cause my ex asked my dd to change her name to his and she was like I want mommy and my baby sisters name. My son came up to me and said he wanted my name as well, I think it is bc I am their mom and they want the same name as me.

So, I talked to my ex and he said yeah, that I could do it. But, if I don't have to do it legaly maybe I will just start hyphenating.

I would love to hyphen my Ds name, he carries the name of his father. I was divorced before he was born and the court legally changed his name to his fathers. My Ex doens't cooperate( also doesn't apy cs or see him, but has to have his boy with his name! UGH!)

so wait, what if the dad is not on the birth certificate? does he have a say then?

I want to change DD's name (she is 7) to the family name, she would be the only one with my maiden name. She never had her dad's last name, I have always had custody and her dad is not on the birth certificate...so do I have to even have to have his 'permission'??

does he pay cs? If so (In OHIO) he is then consdiered the birth parent if 1. on certificate
2. accepts paternity
3. has been ordered to pay cs for dependant
4. claims child for 5yrs w/out dispute

I don't know they wouldn't allow me to hyphen period, but I had a jerk judge.

In Canada, you can change the name without permission if the father's name is not on the birth certificate............
On my son's registration to get his certificate, I had put "father unacknowledged"..............

I am not sure about other places though.

SPEAKING OF NAMES....I may be rambling here....

EX still has DH's last name, DSD (their biological daughter together)
has DH's last name OF COURSE....BUT!!

EX has a baby from another man she was SUPPOSED to marry but
didn't and put "father unknown" on the birth certificate and gave her
DH's last name.

So, now, DSD is confused as to why everyone has the same last name
but we can't all live together in the same house....
