     The law is somewhat archaic in Georgia with respect to unmarried parents.  For that reason, two specialized types of litigation are often necessary: legitimation suits and paternity suits.

Legitimation Lawyers in Gwinnett County

     Generally speaking, if parents are unmarried at the time of a child's birth, the Father has absolutely no rights to the child except for one: pay child support.  This is hardly fair.  As the Father, our Gwinnett County child custody lawyers understand that you want to be a part of your child's life. Complications arise if the Mother denies you that opportunity.  At Chambers & Quinde, we assist fathers with this issue by bringing a Petition for Legitimation, Custody and Visitation.  The goal is to acquire an order from the appropriate Court that the child is "legitimate" and that our client is the legal father.  At the same time, we strive to secure legal and physical custody for the Father.

     Even if the mother of your child has not denied you the opportunity to see your child, the Gwinnett County child custody attorneys at Quinde & Associates still believe that it is of paramount importance to seek an Order of Legitimation.  Being designated and recognized as the "legal father" grants you many rights to the child that you wouldn't otherwise have and avoids possible future conflicts.  For a more detailed analysis of your case, contact the attorneys of Quinde & Associates for your in office free consultation.

     Similarly, if you are a Mother and have been served with a Legitimation Petition, we likewise encourage you to contact our office for a in office free consultation.  There are two important reasons for this:  First, we firmly believe that one of our experienced attorneys will assist you in crafting a custody arrangement that is both beneficial to you and the child.  Second, as a part of the legitimation suit, child support will be determined.  It is extremely advisable to have a knowledgeable attorney on your side to assist you with a fair and accurate calculation of child support.

     Lastly, if you are an unmarried mother seeking child support from the child's father, we would welcome the opportunity to speak with you regarding a paternity suit.  A successful paternity suit will establish the identity of the Father and result in court ordered child support.
