ANSWER #5 of 8

No you do not need the fathers permission to change the last name. If you dont feel the court will feel you have a goood reason to change it then maybe you need to think about this some more. Dont just change your childs name for selfish reasons or to get back at the dad, make sure your doing it for the right reasons.

An attorney will give you all the RIGHT ADVICE as to how to proceed with your request...if they feel its not in your best interest to go forward and waste your time & money by going through the entire procedure then they will strongly advise against it...but if they feel you have every right based on the issues at hand, feel that you are entitled to do as you see fit having full custody and the father only visiting when he feels like it, then they will advise you to go for it...
