    Default How to change father and surname on birth certificate

    Hi all I was wondering if any of you had any info you can provide me on this topic

    My step sons mother had registered his father as her ex boyfriend at the time and he also her ex boyfriends surname and not my husbands. My husband is his real father and we would like to change his details to my husbands so he isn't mentally affected when he turns 18.

    How is this done in sydney? Do we need to attend court and do a DNA test or do we just go to births and deaths?

    I imagine you would need a paternity test to prove that he is the father. Otherwise, anyone could just go and change any kid's details.

    You will need to take a paternity test and apply to have the name changed.

    I'd give BDM a ring. They will help point you in the right direction.
