I have made a complaint and demanding written apology from school because they humiliated me and tried to impose official name on my child after meeting my ex (important point is that before meeting my ex school staff has no issues with her unofficial name being written on books or elsewhere it changed after my ex's entrance in school). I will be meeting with head teacher to discuss this issue she has replied to my email and told that she is investigating the issue.
Please tell me how to make a case. Isn't it enough that since 2 years of age the child is being known by that name and everyone in her life call her with her new name all schools except faith school (where she studied for 2 months) call her with the name child likes.
Do you think these points will be enough:
child being known by new name since 2 yrs now she is 8 yrs
child personally likes her new name and gets upset about old name
second name and surname is ***** ***** then where as a mother I stand?
He imposed the name on me proof is that he is forcing everyone to call child with the name chosen by him. He doesn't care about child;s emotional well being and ignore the fact that child likes her new
My main question is can't I change a given name that was imposed on me?
I am not changing middle or surname which is identity of father.
I provide everything to child and father has never made any financial contributions towards child.
He goes to every school and try to force staff to call child by her official name and not by the name which child prefers.
What sort of proofs does court require to get convinced that name change is in child's welfare?
I don't think it's in child's welfare not to change a name
Hi thanks for your guidance this sounds as a reasonable advice. One more thing will I have to do mediation first? How many sittings will I have to do? How long you thing this whole legal case will take? Will it take 3-4 months or less?
