Altea Attorney

Surname and name

What name will my child bear ? Does it depend on my nationality or the other parent’s nationality ? Can I choose my child’s name ? Can I choose to have a double surname ? Are the rules different according to place of birth ? Do rules differ when the child has been adopted by gay parents ?

What are the conditions for me to change my name or my child’s name ?

How can I correct an incorrect spelling on the Civil State Register ?
