Hi. My name is Shayla and I am 8 1/2 months pregnant. I'm having some issues with the last name because of her father. I want her to have my last name because the father and I are not together. I do wanna put his name on the birth certificate but he has treated me like dirt since I told him she will have my last name, not that he wasn't before but anyways. I want my daughter to have the same last name as me. He already has a 7 year old son who has his last name. This is very important to me. He says the baby is always suppose to get the father's last name. I don't see it as a law so therefor I'm free to choose. Pls give me some advice. I could really use it.
