If one parent has sole custody, and if there is no court order or agreement prohibiting same, they have the right to change the child’s surname. So I don’t believe your ex needs to ask for, or requires, your consent.

Is it her intent to hyphenize to a combination of your surname/her maiden name, to her maiden name only, or to her new partner’s surname?

I think you have a motion currently before the Court – does part of your motion ask for a prohibition on name change? It's a standard clause in most separation agreements.

You’ll be wanting to notify the Registrar General that you have a motion currently before the court, and, if you haven’t included a request for an order prohibiting name change, amend your motion to do so.
