LEGITIMATION IN GEORGIA
If you are seeking to legitimate your relationship with your Child, Attorney Sharon Jackson LLC at Lawrenceville, GA helps you pursue that legal relationship.
Legitimation is a legal term where a father of a child born out of wedlock becomes the child’s legal father. Prior to legitimation, the child is said to be illegitimate. Once a child has been legitimated, he or she is entitled to such benefits as ordained by law as he or she would if that man had been married to the child’s mother at the time of the child’s birth. The father is responsible for providing support to the child and the child is entitled to inherit from the father.
