Q. I Want my Child’s Last Name to be the Same as Mine and my new Husband. My Child’s Biological Father has Never met my Child Because He Does not Know He has a Child. Can I Simply File a Suit for a Name Change?

A. No. The proper way to change your child’s name is to first establish paternity through a paternity suit. In the paternity suit, you can request the change of your child’s last name. Alternatively, after paternity is established, you may file a name change suit, and provide your child’s father with notice of the lawsuit. Your child’s father may or may not contest the change of your child’s name. If your child’s father contests the name change, the judge will ultimately decide whether or not the name should be changed.

One of the best decisions I have ever made was to hire Ms. Cheryl Alsandor. I am very please and grateful, she is by far the most knowledgeable and efficient attorney i have ever dealt with. Her knowledge to destroy an opponent in a court room is incredible. Her ability to catch them in lies and ask the questions to make them look like the idiots they are is key. If you have a serious court issue for family or custody, you need to hire Ms. Alsandor. She knows the law and can see through the opponents lies and intentioal missleading actions. The Judges are sometimes is blinded by the lies of the other side if you dont have a excellent attorney to clear the path for the judge. Ms. Alsandor will clear the path and let the judge see the truth and you will be victorious. Follow your gut and trust Ms. Alsandor. You will be glad you did, believe me. D.

Mrs. Alsandor is an excellent attorney; but most of she is a very empathetic person. This is what separated her from the other attorneys I consulted before hiring her. She helped me during one of the most diffcult times of my life. I was divorcing my wife and fighting for primary custody of my 10 year old son. I actually did not think I would be granted custody being that I am a man and the court systems usually favorite women as being the primary custodian. However after I consulted with Mrs. Alsandor she basically assured me she would do everything legally possible to assure that I was granted custody. Mrs. Alsandor was very understanding, kind and very compassionate. I felt as if she had taken my case personally and this was her fight as well. She responded to my many phone calls and emails; and there were a lot(because of my nerves) Her prices were very reasonable for the extraordinary work that she does. I recently recommend her to one of my co-workers and he noticed the very same qualities. Mrs. Alsandor was God sent. I am happy to report I did win primary custody of my son. We are doing well and we are very happy all thanks to Mrs. Alsandor. Nelson D.

My case was handled well, with professionalism and within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Attorney Alsandor to anyone because she is straight forward and stayed within the guidelines of the law. I did not have to worry about winning my case because she had it under control. I especially like that I did not have to do a lot of work like traveling to her office and missing meetings at my office because we communicated via email, where I could sign the documents and scan and send it. Lastly, her prices where affordable and I was able to easily pay online, which again saved me time. Steven
