Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How old are the children and is the father named on the birth certificates?

Hi Clare

Yes he is named on the birth certificates. The children are 6 and 4 years old.

Thank you.

HI
Then no I am afraid neither parent can change the children's names without the consent of the other party or an Order from the Court.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
