    I am currently going through something like this. I have been advised by the courts aslong as the father is on the birth certificate then you can choose whatever name you would like. Also register your babies name at as many places possible eg. centrelink, medicare, childcare, passport ect. so If he tries to make you change it you have lots of documentation as to why you cannot change it. This is what the courts and lawyers advised.

    OP, you can do whatever you want in this regard. He could try and challenge it, but he'd have to be willing to put in a fair bit of time and money for that... so even if he threatens it, I'd expect it might just be hot air.
