This sounds like a difficult situation, and it's good that you are asking before taking matters into your own hands. I am not a family law attorney, and I recommend that if you do not hear back from someone who is, you should contact a Delaware attorney who specializes in family law. The consultation fee will be money well spent.

You are supposed to notify the father by certified mail, return receipt requested. If that does not work, you have to use all reasonable efforts to notify the father. There is a name change packet on the New Castle County Website. You can call the Civil Division Clerk’s Office of the Court of Common Pleas at

(302) 255-0942.
