Yes you can If he is on the birth certificate or has voluntarily accepted paternity, state laws usually allow such action. In cases where the former does not apply a paternity test will be required before the court allow the child to legally take the name of the biological father.

That depends on the relationship you have with the father. You can always give the baby your last name. If you intend on asking the father for financial help and to be active in the child's life, then consider giving the child the fathers last name. you can give the baby whatever name you want

In general, you can give your baby any last name you want. Some states limit this to the names of either the father or the mother. Even if your husband is not your child's biological father, he is still the child's legal father.

You can give your baby whatever last name you want to give it. It can be your maiden name. Or it can be the baby's father's last name even if if the father is not your husband.

yes the baby can have any name you give it even if the father is not there you just need to make sure you know that he is the father.

If you are unmarried and the father of your child wants nothing to do with the baby then you can give the baby your last name and be sure to register your baby's full name (including the surname ... last name.)

You can give your baby any name you want, although the registrar may ask you if you really want that name!!

As of now, Paternity Fraud is not yet illegal, though that may change.

Certainly. Or you can give your baby your last name. Its the full decision of the couple what to name the baby.

You could give the baby the last name of the father, however it depends are you letting the dad know about the baby? Is there a chance you two will be together? You may consider your last name and the dads. well its in your option. the dad of my baby cheated on me and we are no longer together and ive thought long and hard about the last name thing. but i have choosen to stick with the dads last name so you will know its under his custody. but its your decision

Because she is hoping she and the father will eventually be married and She and her child will have the FAMILY (keyword) name.

If you are unmarried the choice is entirely up to you. But I would find it a bit confusing if the child has a different last name from both parents.

Nothing will happen to your baby, your baby will just be a bastard.

User Avatar

No if anything the baby should have the mothers last name - but check that out for sure as I am not sure.

User Avatar

There is no last age to give birth but if you want a healthy baby, between the age of 20 and 37 is the best.

User Avatar

No, the child's name doesn't affect the court order. Paternity is established by DNA not the names chosen by people.

User Avatar

I believe as long as the baby has his last name he should have to but even if not you can order him to get a DNA test and prove it is his if that's the case.... But if there is no name on the certificate then i don't think anything can be done....also i don't thing you can give the baby his name if he is not on there
