No, you cant take the father's name off the birth certificate, in any case, he could insist on DNA test to prove paternity. If he chooses to fight for custody, he can make it difficult. If this man is abusive, then call the police when he does something abusive. If nothing else, it will establish a record of the incident that you can bring up in court. Just dont do it if there is no abuse, filing a false report would be damaging to your case.
