My ex and I were together 4 years, we have a 2 year old together and she has his last name. I'm now 4 months pregnant with our second child, but he has made it obvious he wants absolutely nothing to do with it. I really dont want my kids to grow up with different last names when they have the same parents. I know I have to go through the courts and such but whats the chances of it being changed and how long does it take?

Unless you have his permission, you won't be able to change your daughter's last name. My niece just went through this with her ex and all she wanted to do was have her last name added onto the current last name. But you might want to check the laws where you live and see if they are different from Mississippi where I'm from.
