I have never lived or married my child's father. Do I have full custody automatically of this child, or do I have to file? for this because in order to get a passport it requires a document stating you have full custody.

2nd question, my child has my last name but I don't like the first name I gave him and would like to change it, do I still need his signature on the form to give permission to change it? I reside in Cleveland, Ohio FYI

Not sure about the name but in Oklahoma where I reside the mother automatically has full custody if the parents are not married. Seems it would be that way in all states since paternity has not been established. Is the father on the birth certificate?
Try a google search as see what comes up.
Good luck!
