I want to know if I can change my child's last name in state of TX if I can not get the father consent because I can not locate him. He has not seen my daughter in 10 years and does not pay child support she does not even want to see her dad because he abused us

I'm not sure, but I think you have to have his rights terminated though the courts before you can have it done without his permission. Since your daughter has not seen him in 10 years and wishes to have this done, I don't think it would be a problem for you to get this done. However, she might have to wait until she is 18 before she can have her name changed.
