In the past, rulings of child custody cases were largely based on a gender-biased system. Fortunately, this has changed over the years. Georgia law now supports and encourages equal rights for fathers who are seeking child custody and visitation rights. If the best interest of the child includes both parents being involved in their life, our experienced paternity lawyer can defend your paternal rights in a court of law with evidence that you should have legal and physical custody of your child and/or fair visitation rights.
At Boudreaux Law Firm, we have years of experience in family law and advocating for fathers in divorce and child custody disputes. We are prepared to represent all types of paternity cases including fathers seeking primary custody, those requesting a fair visitation schedule as well as fathers who would like legal custody of their child in order to share in important life decisions such as education and healthcare. Our paternity lawyer balances a compassionate approach to understand your unique situation with a tenacious legal strategy to help fathers obtain the most favorable outcome in mediation or court.
Legitimation To Establish A Father's Rights
Establishing paternity is called legitimation within Georgia law. Legitimation establishes custody and visitation as well as present child support obligations. For a father who is not married to the child's mother, legitimation is necessary first to legally establish your parental status and paternal rights. At our Augusta law firm, we help fathers who are seeking legitimation to gain child custody as well as fathers who are contesting paternity. We carry the legal expertise to defend fathers who are asked to pay child support for a child they do not believe is theirs. In such cases, our family law attorney will carefully guide you through the delegitimation process.
