Bristol Palin has agreed to her ex-fiancé Dakota Meyer's court petition to have their 4-month-old daughter's last name changed from Palin to Meyer.
According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE Palin and Meyer's daughter's name is listed as Sailor Grace Palin on her birth certificate, and will now be legally changed to Sailor Grace Palin Meyer. Meyer is also now listed on the baby's birth certificate.
Palin's lawyer told PEOPLE in a statement: "Bristol consented to the change of name some time ago," adding that both Palin and Meyer are "talking directly and just being parents without involving the lawyers."
They are "talking directly and just being parents without involving the lawyers." Really? Because Dakota Meyer filed for his name change in court, which ABSOLUTELY involved lawyers.
And in fact it was her "not involved" lawyer who gave that statement to the press.
I kind of want to see this as a win for Dakota, and give him credit for keeping all of this in view of the public because THAT is what keeps the Palins from screwing with you.
But what bothers me is that birth certificate. If Dakota was the father, and Bristol KNEW that, why was his name not already on the birth certificate?
The reason of course is because he either refused to sign an Acknowledgement of Paternity, or he was never asked to sign one.
So one would hope that the DNA test that Bristol's lawyers claimed proved he was the father by a percentage of 99.9957, were indeed accurate.
Because if not Dakota Meyer has just become the latest victim in a long line of people victimized by the Palin family. Actually it could be argued that such is the case even if he is the father.
