Child Legitimation
Decatur, GA

Brezel baru 1

Each child has a special bond with their father. While no two of these relationships are identical, the State of Georgia requires more work to recognize some of them. If your child was born out of wedlock, the state demands that you complete paperwork to establish paternity and child legitimation in Decatur, GA. Since this process is not automatic, you should seek legitimation lawyers in Georgia to represent you. Brezel Family Law has extensive experience in this field. Attorney Brezel is an accomplished father’s right attorney with a passion for helping families. While you can’t entirely escape attorney fees for legitimation, Brezel Family Law will keep them low.

Legitimation Lawyers
In Georgia

The process of child legitimation differs from paternity in several ways. Legitimation lawyers in Georgia can assist with either legal process, but there are restrictions on who applies for legitimation. Review the points below for clarity on how legitimation differs from paternity:

  • Paternity
    • Establishes only a biological relationship between a child and their father
    • Can be proven by a signed birth certificate, if available
    • Anyone among the child, the child’s mother, a relative caring for the child, the Department of Human Services, or the alleged father may file to establish the biological father’s paternity
    • Does not establish a legal relationship between father and child
  • Legitimation
    • Establishes a legal relationship between a child and their biological father
    • Requires that paternity has already been established
    • Only the biological father can file for legitimation

Not everyone recognizes the distinction between these two, but as a father, your rights differ in each case. Brezel Family Law can help you see the process of child legitimation and what to expect afterward. Let us help you in Decatur, GA. Attorney Brezel will provide top-notch help without high attorney fees for legitimation.

Father’s Right Attorney

There’s no overstating how important a mother is in their child’s life. Because of this truth, some people downplay the importance of fathers. Unfortunately, this leads to situations that fail to represent fathers’ interests. These situations aren’t healthy for children, so it’s important to find a father’s right attorney to help. Attorney Brezel can help you from the first steps of the paternity process. After that process, he’ll ensure that you successfully establish child legitimation. From that point, he can help you negotiate favorable terms for custody. Once everything is complete, you should have a functioning agreement that helps you build a relationship with your child.

When you’re seeking qualified help, start by finding legitimation lawyers in Georgia. Those who understand that process are better-equipped to fight for you in court if it comes to that. There’s no replacement for experience when it comes to preparation for legal battles. You can build on that, however. Attorney Brezel has direct experience both as a lawyer and clerking for a judge who oversaw family law cases. Put his inside knowledge at your service by choosing Brezel Family Law to protect your father’s rights. You deserve custody and support agreements that let you build a meaningful relationship with your kids.
