Legitimation in Georgia

Legitimation is the only way the father of a child born out of wedlock secures his paternal rights in Georgia.

Fathers who wish to legitimate their relationship with their children have two options—either by marrying the mother of the child and legitimating the paternal relationship by operation of law or by filing a petition for legitimation in court.

This legal procedure is very important for the well-being of both fathers and children—without it, fathers have no legal or custodial rights, and children may be denied inheritances or government benefits that may stem from the father. 

Contact Denise S. Esserman for help filing your petition and guidance through the legal process of legitimation.
