Remove Absent Parents From A Child's Birth Certificate

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

If a mother or father has not been consistent in a child's life for five years. There should be a new law to remove all parental responsibility and have that parents name removed from the child's birth certificate?

My daughters father has been non-existent in her life and she is now 10. In her own words she doesn't want his last name on any official documentation. 

It is therefore suggested to you the British Government, that the child should then be able to without the intervention of deed poll to the mothers maiden name/fathers surname so all future identification. I.e, driving license, passport, citizen cards and birth certificate has no reminder of the absent parent whatsoever.
