I have a minor son from my first marriage, but after my husband's death, I have remarried.
I would like to change the name of my son's name by replacing my 1st Husband's name with my second Husband in school records. The school wants a court decree but the lawyers inform that it is not possible as it cannot be treated as adoption, as I can not adopt my own son. We are informed that we cannot file a case on school or the Education board for getting a decree. The school / Education Board is not accepting my 1st husbands death certificate and my registered marriage certificate to change my 1st husband's name with the 2nd husband.
It is logical that after the death of my first husband, my second husband is now the legal father of my son.
Can we also change the name of the 1st Husband in my son's birth certificate.
