Hi, I have a 4 yr old girl and I am wanting to change her last name to my soon to husbands name as she's technically his step daughter (although he's bin there since she was 3 months old) , we've looked into adoption but that road seems very long and stressfull , is there any other way i can change her last name to his ?

Shouldn't be an issue then. It will be a matter of filling in some forms and filing in most places. You didn't mention where you lived, but I suspect that's all that will be required.

Her bio dad hasn't been in her life since she was 6 weeks old and his name is not on birth certificate,

Who is on her birth certificate as her father? You would need to get that person's permission. If there is no father listed on her birth certificate, I believe it would be relatively simple to get it changed.

depends on whether or not bio dad is in the picture or on the birth certificate if he is not then all you would have to do is fill out some forms pay a fee and it is changed
