Legitimation

Legitimation

If you and the mother of your child were not married at the time of the child’s birth, it is important for you to work with an attorney who understands father’s rights. Georgia does not give an unwed father any specific rights, in spite of the fact they may be liable for child support payments.

In order to have a relationship with your child, there is a specific process you will have to go through to ensure your rights are protected. One of our father’s rights attorneys in our Douglasville, or Albany Georgia offices can help you file a legitimation action in Georgia Superior Court.

We understand how important it is for you to have access to your child, and build a strong relationship with them. Once the court approves your legitimation petition, you will have the same rights as the child’s mother, including having a say in the child’s health care, education, and other matters.

Contact Chisolm Trimble & Associates, LLC today, and let us help you get the rights you are entitled to; we will work tirelessly to ensure you are treated fairly, and that you have the right to have a loving relationship with your child.
