Seeking Father Legitimation?

Contact Our Duluth Law Firm and Take Control of Your Situation.

Legitimation is a more unique aspect of family law. In Georgia, a child “born out of wedlock” is not legitimized. In other words, the man has not established his parental rights to his child unless the baby was conceived or born during marriage.

If the parents of the child do not get married, which would legitimize the father’s paternity, the man must pursue legitimation to earn an official status of paternity. Our law firm provides men looking for legitimation knowledgeable and experienced legal aid when pursuing legitimation through the courts. Contact our law firm for an attorney today!

Father legitimation helps the father of a child earn an official status of paternity. This process can be complicated, and it requires an experienced attorney to ensure that all the proper paperwork is filed. Schedule a free lawyer consultation with our experienced law firm today to get started!


Did you know?

A Petition for Legitimation is typically filed in the Superior Court in the county where the mother lives, but if the mother cannot be found, or lives out of state, the petition can be filed in the county where the father lives.
