Paternity & Legitimation
Paternity is often necessary when parents were not married, or when there is reason to question who the father of a child is despite the fact that the mother had a legal husband at the time a baby was conceived.
As the Mother, Paternity is necessary to protect the Best Interest of the Child to document the biological father as well as ensure that the mother receives Child Support for the child from the father.
As the Father, Paternity is necessary to protect the rights of the father to ensure that the father has visitation rights with the child as well as ensuring that the father is not paying Child Support for a child that is not his.
At Georgia Family Law, P.C., we understand the importance of determining the biological father for a child and protecting the rights of all parties involved.
