In Georgia, if you are a man with a child that is born to a woman with whom you have never been married to, then you have no rights to the child. You are however , required by law to pay child support, and financially support that child, even if you have not legitimized the child. In some situations, the father has signed a document that states he has legitimized the child, but this document does not give the father any custody or visitation rights.
You must file a document in superior court to obtain these rights . The sooner you do this do this the greater your chances are of prevailing in your action .
