Changing My Son's Last Name.

I gave my son his father's last name, thinking that he would play an active role as his dad. But, he hasn't and still doesn't. I have full custody of my son and want to change his last name to mine. Since I have full custody, I don't think I need my son's biological father's consent. If I do and/or do not need his consent, how do I go about changing my son's last name?

My son and I live in Texas and his father's name isn't on the birth certificate.

Depends where you live I believe. I most places, you need the consent of whoever is on the birth certificate, which may well include the father.
