Atlanta Lawyers For Establishing Paternity

Nowadays, roughly 40% of children born in this country are born outside of wedlock. While this trend is becoming more common as time goes on, many parents are still not aware of the legal consequences that come from this decision. Any father who has their child while unmarried in Georgia has no automatic rights to the child, and legal action is necessary to establish those rights.

At The Siemon Law Firm in Atlanta, we know the consequences that can come from not establishing paternity, and we have been helping mothers and fathers establish paternity for years. Trying to legally confirm the father of your children can be a complicated process, but we are here to keep things simple for you.

Legitimation Benefits Mothers And Fathers

Taking legitimation action to confirm the father of a child offers benefits to both parents of the child. For the father, going through this process adds their name to their child’s birth certificate, and grants them opportunities of pursuing legal and physical custody. It is important to note that even if a father does not have their paternity established, it is still possible for a mother to seek child support from them.

For mothers, establishing paternity can help ensure their partner has the full ability to help raise their children, it can make seeking child support easier, and it can also help a child receive inheritance from the father, when that day should come.

When you are seeking legitimation action, either as the father or mother, we can help you secure the outcome your family deserves to protect their best interests.
