Call 770-609-1247 to speak with an Atlanta Paternity Attorney
A paternity suit is when a mother takes legal action to establish who the father of her child is. A legitimation suit is when a father takes legal action against the mother to prove that he is the father of the child. For practical purposes, both of these suits are legally similar and are usually referred to under the umbrella term paternity.
Paternity suits can manifest in any number of ways; a mother can file an action against the alleged biological father to collect support. Or, she can file a criminal action against the alleged father for non-support.
In any case, paternity suits usually progress by first establishing a genetic relationship via a DNA test. Once this has been done, you will move forward with your specific case, whether you are seeking child support or something else.
Many of these cases are complex and require legal counsel experienced with such matters. Our team has dealt with hundreds of family law cases with paternity issues and can help guide you through the process while crafting the best plan of action for your unique case.
