Parental Rights Lawyer in North Atlanta
Put 30+ Years of Legal Experience to Work for You
Under Georgia law, parent’s rights vary for married and unmarried parents. When a child is born out of wedlock, sole custody is automatically given to the mother. In this situation, there are steps that must be taken for a father to have a legal right to child custody and visitation. If you need a Sandy Springs family lawyer or help establishing your right as a parent, Brenner Law Group, LLC can help.
Rights & Responsibilities of Parents
Married parents have a responsibility to care for their children and a legal right to custody and visitation, in the event of a divorce. When the parents are not married, the father has no legal right to custody or visitation, although he may be ordered to pay child support. In order to enjoy parent’s rights, a father must first file a petition for legitimation.
Custody & Visitation
After legitimation, our North Atlanta parental rights attorney can file petitions for child custody and visitation. Neither legitimation nor custody are guaranteed, even if a DNA test has shown that you are the parent of the child. It is up to the discretion of the judge, based on what he or she believes is in the best interests of the child. This is where an experienced lawyer is essential. Ms. Brenner has more than 30 years of experience and a unique skill set to meet the needs of our clients.
