This is an odd question im sure.. But im going to be a single mother because the man who fathered my chiLd wants nothing to do with her or myself after 6 years of being together and me helping raise his 2 children... I want to give her my last name but many people are telling me to do otherwise. I know he will not sign a birth certificate i know he wont be there for the birth or for us in general. I dont want him to have any rights for her.. When he has wished so much evil upon us.. But also will it affect me applying for child support? I live in Texas just wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar and what they did... TIA.
