If the father does not agree DHA will not be able to and will refer you to sought relief at the magistrates court. Remember that both you and him agreed when the child is born that he would inherit the fathers surname. The fact that you are no longer in a relationship with the father has nothing to do with the child. So, its an issue between you and the father. - Meaning that the court will not rule in favour of the surname being changed, unless there is really good reason that affect the child directly.
