Name change for a child in Florida requires certain findings

Posted by Nydia Streets of Streets Law in Florida Name Change

Unmarried parents who are involved in a Florida paternity case may dispute a change in the child’s name. In Bowman v. Hutton, 1D18-3400 (Fla. 1st DCA 2019), the parties disputed a change in the child’s last name. The court hyphenated the child’s last name using both parents’ last names and the mother appealed.
