Firstly you need to know that the courts are very against changing the childs surname as this is considered to be the childs heritage.
Whilst the above is the starting point, if the father is also changing his name to something else then a court might consider that it is in your childs best interests for the surname to be changed to your family name.
The court will invite the father to such a hearing and ask his opinion when making its decision so his opinion would be sought.
