When it comes to the father's name on the birth certificate what is the procedure? If the father is not available or choose not to be part of you and your baby's life can you still put his name down on the birth certificate but give your baby your last name? How is this done in New York?

This depends on the state you live in. Generally you cannot put a man's name on the birth certificate if he is not there.
