I just had a baby me and the father are not married and never will be. I want my daughter to have my last name just like my other daughter. At the hospital I filled out all of the paperwork with just me and my last name. The father is now suing me for paternity and wants to change her last name to his. I didn't file for any child support just wanted him to leave us alone. I have talked to 2 attorneys they say if he wants it he will get it because this is Texas law. Any ideas? I think this is crap he can just walk in and say I'll pay so change her name. What happened to mothers rights do those end when I give birth because I'm only the mother.
