my child has her birth father's last name, but his name isn't on her birth certificate at all. i want to change her last name to my maiden name so she'll no longer be teased or embarrassed by her last name by kids at school. the ppl @ the vital stats office say i have to get a court order to change last name is the state of sc. what are all the steps involved? i really need help. before anyone asks, no the birth father isn't financially supporting my child nor is he spending any time w/her. a child support order was established, but he refuses to pay & i don't know where he is now. what should i do?

i'm going through the same thing & everyone that i've talked to, including the clerk of court and family court says that you must hire an attorney to change the last name of your child
