Experienced Help For Legitimation
Georgia law states that a paternity action is a legal action to establish that a man is the child’s biological father. Even if the father is named on the child’s birth certificate, the legitimation process is required by law if the parents are unmarried. Unfortunately, this process can be complicated without the help of a knowledgeable lawyer.

Understanding Parental Rights
In most cases, it is undoubtedly in the child’s interests to maintain a healthy and close relationship with both parents. Attorney Diana Whipkey Young helps parents establish a strong custody order so that they can nurture their relationship with their son or daughter. By establishing legitimation, parents may also request all the rights and responsibilities, including:
- Visitation rights and parenting time
- Child support payments
- The ability for a child to get an inheritance, social security benefits and veteran’s benefits
An unmarried father can take advantage of the legitimation process to enjoy the same visitation and custody rights concerning their child as a divorced father would enjoy. The child also has the legal right to enjoy a positive, healthy and legal relationship with their father.
