What would you like to do?
Most states require the last name of one or the other parent. In some countries, unless otherwise specified the child's name defaults to the last name of the mother. In most countries the father's family name is the default.

I REALLY WANT TO CHANGE MY BABY'S LAST NAME IT WENT WRONG WITH MY EX BOYFRIEND HE ISNT MY BABY'S BLOOF DAD I MADE A BIG MISTAKE ON PUTTING HIS LAST NAME
How can you put your name on the baby's birth certificate if you're not the biological father but want to take responsibility for him?
You don't have to be the real father to be on a child's birth certificate. You would just have to sign a paternity affadavit, in which you are assuming all legal respons…ibilities to that child. You would talk to the mother about adopting the child and go through that process--if you are married.
If you put your baby's legal father's name on the birth certificate and he is paying child support what legal visitation rights does he have and who determines them the court of myself the mother?
Since you don't have a court order saying when he can visit the child, you can make the arrangements to suit yoursellf.
Regardless of location the father is the father. So, yes.
sure y not
If the minor is the biological mother of the infant she can. But, the person named as the father has the right to contest the matter and request a paternity test if he so choo…ses. If the couple are unmarried, and the father denies paternity, the court will require paternity to be established before any issues regarding the child (child support, custody, visitation, etc.) will be addressed.
If you are legally married and have a baby with someone else can you put the baby's father name on the birth certificate and can the baby have the father's last name instead of my husbands?
The child will have whatever name you put on the birth certificate. The name is totally up to you it doesn't matter who he is biologically related to. New answer...from some…one else. I'm going through the exact same thing. Your baby can have your boyfriends last name but they wont let him be on the birth certificate technically your husband is the father by law. So you have to take your boyfriend to court and they will also have your husband there to.
no you do not have to put the fathers name on the birth certificate. Unless you want to. my sons fathers name is not on his birth certificate. but i have been thinking about p…utting his name on there. because i don't want my son to see it when he grows up and ask me why his daddys name isn't on there.
Is he actually the father, or are you planning to commit paternity fraud?
Yes of course. If he won't sign then the mother can take him to court to determine his paternity. She can do that no matter what his marital status is.
Do I have to put my husband's name on my unborn baby's birth certificate if we are going through a divorce?
No - he must sign an acknowledgment of paternity.
In the US, a parent may choose any name s/he wishes for the child, as long as it's not done for fraudulent purposes.
No, you should not but the baby's father's last name on the birth certificate. Also, it is better to put your last name anyways because of legal matters, social relations, and… less questions will have to be answered in the future. Although the child does not need to have its father's last name the father's full name should be stated on the birth certificate so the father will be identified in the vital records.
Procedure depends on state law (or country if outside the USA) in the jurisdiction where the child legally resides. If you could kindly provide that information or ask your qu…estion again including it, an accurate answer could be provided.
Yes, you write someone's name was born on the birth date in the hospital name
The mother is the legal guardian from birth and can give the child any name she wants but she can not sign for the father on the birth certificate. He have to sign it and if s…he was below age of consent when the child was conceived he can go to prison for statutory rape.
