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.

The court can change the custody order and take primary custody away from the mother.

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.


Can you go live with dad when mom has custody?

No, not without modification of the court orders regarding custody. Your parents must adhere to the custody order issued by the court. In order for you to live with your father, your parents must return to court to have the custody order modified.Perhaps you and your parents could work out a new visitation schedule together so you can spend more time with your father. It may be easier to get more visitation with dad rather than a change in physical custody. Try talking to your mom about it a some time when things are going smoothly. Tell her how you feel and why and give her the chance to explain her perspective on both a new visitation schedule and the possibility of your living with your father. If she isn't agreeable to the change in custody or a new visitation schedule then your father would need to take her to court to try to get the court to issue a new order.

What happens if primary custodial parent moves without permission?

Generally when the parent of a minor child wishes to move out of state or to a location where the distance would affect the visitation and custodial rights of the other parent, that parent must seek the approval of the other parent and should obtain an order from the court granting them permission to relocate the child. The existing orders would need to be modified.


How can you deny joint custody to an abusive parent?

YOU cannot deny any custody or visitation. Only the court can make an enforceable decision regarding these matters. State laws vary. If physical abuse is the case, the custodial parent will need a record of the abuse and should call the police, take pictures to record the effects, and try to have dis-interested witnesses present at the time of any contact between the parents. If there is no abuse to the children, or no abuse in the presence of the children, it is unlikely to make any change in the court decision for joint custody. It may compel the court to make some order for supervised exchange of the children for visitation. Only the court can make any decision, especially regarding custody. If the non-custodial parent is abusive to the children it may be very good grounds for a sole custody arrangement. It may also encourage the court to provide for supervised visitation. Visitation is a different issue than custody. Visitation is the means for the non-custodial parent to have a relationship with the children and build that relationship. A court generally regards this as semi-sacred. A custodial parent should NOT deny visitation. If it is necessary to curtail visitation for the real safety of the children, the custodial parent should immediately file a request for a change of visitation. Otherwise, a court may frown on a parent who denies visitation. In some states, continual denial of visitation can be grounds for a change of custody.

Can a mother move her child's school and home without the father's permission?

That depends on the custody and visitation arrangements set forth in the court orders. If the father has joint legal custody she needs to discuss the change in school with him. Generally, the mother could move a short distance without involving the court. However, a long distance move would require the consent of the court and a modification of the court orders. It would go easier if the non-custodial parent is willing to consent to the move.
