Parenthood is a serious matter and one that brings with it a host of obligations. Do you have doubts about whether you are actually the biological parent of a child? Or has your paternity been legally questioned?
When parties who are unmarried have a child, and disputes arise over the establishment of paternity, custody, visitation and support, the type of suit filed depends on the status of the father. In the state of Georgia Paternity law deals with the legal relationship between a father and a child, including the rights and obligations of both the man and the child to each other as well as to others. A child’s paternity may be relevant in relation to issues of legitimacy, inheritance and rights to a putative father’s title or surname, as well as the biological father’s rights to custody and obligations for child support.
Whether you are interested in DNA evidence to prove or disprove paternity, or you are interested in collecting or defending against child support payments, Atlanta paternity attorney Karen Brown-Williams recognizes the interests of both the mother and the father in establishing paternity.
