Changing a Child’s Last Name
Does anyone have any experience in successfully getting a child’s last name changed without the the consent of the other parent? He currently has his father’s last name, the mother would like his last name hyphenated to both. The child is already referred to by both last names in common usage.
Alberta requires that an Application to Dispense with Consent done prior to the name change. Does anyone have success in doing this? And what reasons did the court accept for the change?
