Establishing Paternity For Your Children In Alpharetta

Paternal rights are often taken for granted when a child is born. In Georgia, if the father is not married to the mother when a child is born, they may be surprised to learn that the father has no paternal rights at all over the child. There are benefits for both the mother and the father to establish this paternity, but it often requires the guidance of a skilled Alpharetta family law attorney.

At The Siemon Law Firm’s Alpharetta office, you can meet with a legal team that is compassionate about protecting clients throughout their family law needs. We help both mothers and fathers establish paternity, because we are committed to helping the children in these situations in any way we can.

Understanding Paternal Rights Out Of Wedlock

When it comes to what natural parental rights a father has when his child is born out of wedlock, the short answer is that he does not have any. Despite this lack of rights, the mother is still able to pursue child support from the father. If she is successful in securing this income, the father will still not have any rights to the child without a legitimation action.

Whether you are looking to hold a father accountable for his children or you are trying to gain legal rights to your child as their father, we can help you navigate the complex process of establishing paternity. From signing a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgement (PA) Form to establishing paternity through a court order, we will stand by your side through every step of the process to settle things as quickly as possible.

Our Experience Is Your Benefit

Without the guidance of an experienced Alpharetta lawyer, establishing paternity of an uncooperative father can take months or longer, if it ever happens at all. No matter what side of a paternity establishment you are on, we are prepared to defend your best interests along the way. Call us at 770-888-5120 or email us here to schedule your initial consultation today.
