Each state has its own laws governing name change of minor children. It is doubtful that it can be done without the knowledge or consent of a biological parent.

if the parents disagree over the last name, you can be ordered to hyphenate that last name (in alphabetical order). or you could voluntarily decide to hyphenate it. if you were never married, a hyphenated name is likely to be granted to you. also the hospital in PA where my son was born stated to me that i legally could put in for a name change on him one time, since i was undecided at the time of birth. but i don't know what the time frame on that was.

It depends on the custody agreement that is in place. If a minor changes residence without the permission of the parent who has primary custody, then that goes against the court order. If she wants to change residences, a request to the court will usually accomplish this.

A mother continuously violates court orders by failing to obey the visitation order and refusing to allow the father to see the children. What can the father do?

The court can change the custody order and take primary custody away from the mother. The father should stay on top of the situation by filing a motion for contempt of a court order (visitation) and every time she violates the visitation order he should keep filing motions for contempt. She may eventually lose custody.The court can change the custody order and take primary custody away from the mother.
