    Name change for daughter

    When I was divorced 4 years ago I had my last name change back to my maiden name and wanted the same for my daughter. Well the lawyer told me we could do that after the divorce was final but he wanted more money. My ex-husband has been in prison all these years and he will not get out until 2028 when my daughter will be in her 20s. I've been with a wonderful man who has helped me raise her and he wants to adopt her when we get married next year. I really want to get her last name changed to my last name but can't afford a lawyer. I was wondering if I would be able to use the name change sites that are online or would it be advisable to have a lawyer do it since my ex-husband is in prison. Thank you
