Okay so, I want to change my daughter's last name to mine instead of her father's. He's on her birth certificate though, and I've seen stuff where I have to get some sort of forms and mail them to him, only I have no idea where he is and where he lives. The last time I saw him he was homeless and that was in June. That was the last time he saw our kids and then he didn't see her or try to contact her before that from July 2012-March 2013. And the only reason he contacted her in the first place, so I believe, is because I begged him to. When we were together, he was never there for us, and I supported all 3 of us until I was pregnant with our son. Then I was stuck, and then he cheated on me 2 weeks before he was born and he's not on that birth certificate. Anyway, he's not legitimized and in GA being on the birth certificate doesn't give him legal rights, it's just easier to get child support from him, which I will not do, I mean, I've been doing it on my own for 3 years now, why should I need his help now when he never bothered to offer before. The most he's given me for the kids is $80 in the 2 years....so...yeah. Basically, how would I go about changing my daughter's last name to mine.
