Seeking advice from clever hubbers
My DS starts prep next year and I would like to change his surname legally, using a "Note change of name" form through the courts.
Has anybody ever done this successfully without the signature of the other parent, as stated on the birth certificate?
Bio dad has been non existent for the last 3.5 years, and our family name is the name DS is known as to everyone, but I want to change his name on the medicare card, school enrolment etc.
I do not want to change details on my DS's birth certificate, only lodge a legal note of name change...
Can anyone help? I'm getting myself in a bit of a state about this
Any help, advice or suggestions would be appreciated
