Default Judge criticizes 'devious' woman who changed boy's name without father's consent

Judge criticizes 'devious' woman who changed boy's name without father's consent | CTV News

The judge ended up ordering that the lastname be hyphenated...new "step-dads" lastname first, followed by bio-Dad's lastname.

I read that and I though that the name should have been ordered to be change back to what it was originally.

Yeah, I was surprised that they simply tacked Dad's surname on, but it probably is because the kid has had the "stepdad" surname since 2009 already.

Seems like a simple case of a judge making the most neutral choice possible by ordering that the child's name be the hyphenated names of each of his parents, in the usual alphabetical order.

It's not so much that it's the name of the step-dad, it's that it's the name of the mother because she changed hers upon marriage.
