Legitimation

Legitimation with compassion and care.

Whether you are a father seeking to legitimate your child born outside of a marriage, or a mother wanting to file a paternity action to establish support, the attorneys at Burney & Reese can help. Too many individuals wait until a relationship dissolves to legitimate a child, and there can be unexpected consequences as a result of the delay. Until there is a Court order legitimating a child born outside of a marriage, a father has no legal rights in Georgia. With regard to the mother seeking support, a parent has a duty to support a child, pursuant to Georgia law. In some situations, there is a possibility of seeking retroactive support for the time prior to the entry of a Court order.
