What is the name of your state? CA
I am going to be registering my daughter for Kindergarten in the next week or so and I was told that I could register her under any name I wanted, is that true?? Her father and I were never married, but she has his last name...well, he hasn't contacted or seen her in 3 years...and she's almost 5! She doesn't know who he is, nor does she really know her last name. As far as she's concerned, her last name is the same as her daddy's (my husband). I am in no way trying to defraud anyone, and she doesn't have any debt to escape so can I legally use whatever name we want for her??
In the state of Oregon (my husband is a resident there), it says as long as it isn't for fraud or to escape debt that it is completely legal to use whatever name you want. I have searched and searched for info on CA and I can't find it. Help!!What is the name of your state?
