I have posted on here quite a few times reagrding my partners awful ex and the court case he had to go through to get contact.
I am now back as she has now thrown another spanner in the works
She recently married a man she has known less than a year and has emailed my partner and asked his permission to change sons surname.
At present sons surname is double barrelled with hers first and my partners second, she is suggesting that she change his name so that her new married name(her husbands name) is first and my partners is second so his son will have a double barrelled name of his stepfathers and real fathers.
Obviously she will drop my partners surname if she gets what she wants and he will just be known as the stepfathers name on anything other than his birth certificate,
My question is can she do this? my partner has a court order stating that son is not to be known by any other name but she said she is going to apply to the courts for the name change.
My partner is beside himself as he has fought so hard for contact and shes still trying to push him out anyway she can. hes also concerned for his son as she has told son to call this man ''step daddy'' within 6 months of knowing him and has said that she has asked son and he wants his name changed (hes 4 years old)
Any advice welcome
When will this nightmare end!!!
