Is there any way my children can change their surname legally?

The team from The Family Matters Show answer this question from the community:

“I have 2 children aged 14 and 16 who have not had contact with their biological father since 2010. Neither have I received much in the way of child support since our separation in 2006. Is there any way the children can change their surname legally? They do not use their legal name at school or in general life. Only when it comes to banks and licences, and then it brings great angst and hurt.”

The Family Matters Show is LIVE on Facebook on the first Tuesday of every month from noon.
