Birth Certificates

How can a father who pays child support and whose name is on the birth certificate change the child's last name to his if he and the child's mother were not married?

That is the mother's choice and ultimate decision.

If he is married to the child's mother the decision is theirs to make, but if he is not married to her the mother decides the child's last name.

A childs mother must file a petition for child support in the local family court.

Go to vital records and request a copy of birth records. Ask to see Childs school file with birth record in it. If you are not on the birth certificate, you cannot request a copy.
