When a child is born to unmarried parents, the mother is the only physical and legal guardian of that child under Georgia law until a paternity or legitimation action is filed. Practically, that means the father is not entitled to any parenting time with the child and generally the mother will not receive any child support payments.
The Atlanta family law attorney’s at V&T Law represent men and women in legal proceedings addressing children born out of wedlock. We provide legal counsel to:
- Mothers seeking child support
- Fathers seeking visitation or custody of a child
- Men seeking to establish that they are not the father of a child.
