hello there,
this is a follow up question to one i have previously posted with regards to me ex partner getting married and wanting to change our daughters surname.
my surname is on her birth certificate and although I am against the idea of this i just want something clarifying if possible.
If I were to allow this surname change for my daughter would i still have to pay her maintenance for our daughter, now I know this sounds horrible as i love my daughter but it's just something someone at work told me, that if I were to allow this change to be done properly, and even though I am her biological father then I legally wouldn't have to pay her any maintenance and should still be entitled to see my daughter too.

im not thinking of doing this but would just like some info and feedback if possible please, as to me it doesn't sound right, i still think im my opinion that I would have to pay maintenance.
thank you for any feedback.

That’s not true I’m afraid, the only time that child maintenance wouldn’t be paid is if the new husband legally adopted your daughter.

Always good to ask if you aren't clear - it's best to make sure you have the correct advice, and it helps others who may be wondering the same :)
