Yes, you are able to change your child surname. But in order for the court to grant you full care and control of the child, you must be fully capable to handle of both mindset and financial. The court(the judge) won't be able to give you full control if you lack both. You need a strong case and also a good lawyer to fight for you. Good luck and best wishes. Take care.

Hi can you share your process? My ex and i are not married and ICA told me need him to consent. He is in the bc but he raped me while we were together so i don’t wish to contact him. I’m also working on sole custody but my lawyer told me not to mention the name change or court may not give me sole custody and no access for him

I've got sole custody too, unable to change surname unless he approves >

It is possible to change. Find a good lawyer. Money make the world spins and it is legal.

I think you can. You can consult any law firm to know more
