questions & answers

Question: I have a 1 year old son that does not have me or his biological father last name how can I get his last name same as his biological father last name

Answer: Name changes are handled by the Arizona Department of Health Services Vital Statistics Section.  Because your child is over one year of age, a certified court order will be required.  Go to https://www.azdhs.gov/licensing/vital-records/index.php#corrections-amendments-registrants-name and review the requirements.  You can obtain the forms and instructions you need for the name change on the Arizona Court website.  Go to: https://www.azcourts.gov/selfservicecenter/Forms/Name-Change .
