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.

I spoke with Mr. Qader, he was extremely helpful. He listened to my concerns and didn’t rush me with speaking. I had experiences with other attorneys that wouldn’t listen to a complete sentence and interrupt because they were pressed for time. He was patient and shown concerned. Mr. Qader didn’t make me feel like I was just another client. Thank you.
