Your Rights as a Father

M. Qader A. Baig & Associates, LLC — A Conyers, Georgia Family Law Firm

In Georgia, an unmarried father is not presumed to be the legal father of a child until an "order of legitimation" is obtained. Before a father can pursue custody or visitation rights, paternity must be established.

Even if an unmarried father is named on the child's birth certificate, he is not legally the father until an order of legitimation is obtained. If both parents agree on the identity of the child's father, obtaining an order of legitimation is easier. In a marriage, the husband is presumed to be the legal father of the child.

How We Can Help

If you are a father looking to obtain custody or visitation rights, we can help you seek an order of legitimation. We can guide you through the steps, and assist you in taking a paternity test, if needed. Once paternity has been established, our law firm will help you establish parental rights involving visitation and child custody.

If you are a mother who wants to legally establish the identity of your child's father, we can help. By obtaining an order of legitimation, it is possible to enforce child support payments — including arrears, or missed payments for an extended amount of time.
