PAUL EMMA VS. JESSICA EVANS A-2303-10T3

PAUL EMMA VS. JESSICA EVANS           A-2303-10T3 
     In Ronan v. Adely, 182 N.J. 103 (2004) and Gubernat v. Deremer, 140 N.J. 120 (1995), the Court established a presumption in favor of the choice of a parent of primary residence (PPR) when seeking a change of the surname of a child born out of wedlock.  In this appeal, the court rejected the argument that this presumption should be applied when, following a divorce, the PPR seeks to change the surname of children born during the course of a marriage.  01-20-12
