Has the child always been known with this surname?
If you can prove that the surname has always been this surname then there should not be a problem. Some children have their mother's surname. This is not uncommon.
I see. But you have not mislead anyone about this.
It is very important from the HO perspective that you do not mislead them with regard to their forms. But if you have not mislead them in the forms then this seems to be easily explainable if it comes up.
I am really not as concerned about this. You decided to accept parental responsibility and that is what the form specifically asked for. Not biological father. I really do not think you have done anything wrong nor that there is a problem. Legally and factually you have not mislead them.
Well I agree. But I still from experience think that this should not be a big issue. The key is the phraseology of the certificate form and that you consider that you have PR. Happy to discuss and please rate positive.
I hope that answers your question. Please ask anything as necessary.
I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating (3, 4 or 5 stars) as that is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you.
