Only the court can terminate parental rights permanently. An absentee father is not bound by any time limits on when he may seek visitation or even custodial rights concerning his child/children, the exception is a court ajudication of abandonment. The issue pertaining to changing a child's name, it cannot be done arbitrarily. State laws govern how or if a change of name can be done without the permission of the biological father.

Generally the court will require that notice of the petition for a name change be given to the father. The court may allow a publishing if the father's address is not known or a mailing to his last known address.

Cam the mother move child of state without father's permission in the state of Florida?

If the mother has sole custody of the child, then yes -- the father doesn't need notification. With joint custody, the answer may vary, but in most cases the father must be at least notified. The permission would be from a judge, not the father.


If the child does not have the father's last name can the father change the childs last name?

The father would need to prove paternity if the parents were not married. He would also need to provide evidence the change in name is in the best interest of the child. If the child lives with the mother who has custody it is unlikely the court will allow the name change. If the father didn't marry the child's mother there is no reason for the court to allow the child's name to be changed.

What can the father do if mother of the kids move out of state with out asking the father first?

First, the father must be sure that the mother did not receive permission from the family court to move. If the mother did not get permission from the family court, the father can immediately go to his local family court, and file for full custody of his children. Upon hearing that the mother absconded with the children, a judge will issue an Amber Alert for the children. The children will be retrieved from the state the mother took them to and be returned to the father. Usually this results in the mother receiving supervised visitation for quite a while, since she cannot be trusted to follow a court order.
