Changing My Daughter's Last Name to Mine

Maria - posted on 05/23/2014 ( no moms have responded yet )




I lived in Ontario with my daughter's father for a few years. After I got pregnant I saw his demon side. He beat me while I was pregnant and when my daughter was a year he called immigration and had me and daughter deported. ( She's Canadian born though). It's been a year + and he doesn't support her at all . We were never married. But I gave my daughter his last name cuz at the time I stupidly was engaged. Now we haven't lived in Ontario for a year + I want to get her last name changed to mine to make things easier. Do I have to inform him if I can't find him and he doesn't support her? What rights does he have to stop me? I want this dead beat's name off of my child's documents. Please Help!!!!
