In the state of Georgia, once the father of a child is established through paternity testing, he gains certain rights and legal obligations. Divorce is a complex matter and issues such as: child support, spousal support, visitation, and other sensitive matters need to be resolved in such a way that protects the best interests of the children involved.

If the father of the child has been established, the court is obligated to treat him with equality when it comes to determining visitation and other rights. For parents that were never married, the father must be established through the use of a paternity test and once declared the legal father; he is granted the same rights are a married father. In some cases, the father wishes to obtain physical custody of the child. There are certain factors that the court will review when determining which parent is to obtain physical custody.

Fathers' Rights: You Have an Advocate

When the court is presented with a divorce case involving two spouses and one or more children, the court assumes that the husband is the father of the children in the marriage. If the fatherhood is challenged by either spouse, however, a paternity test may be necessary to prove or disprove fatherhood. Fathers are legally granted the right to spend quality time with their children unless the court considers them to be a threat to the well-being of the child. The court will consider the prior relationship with the child, work schedule, the father's ability to raise the child and more. The firm has fought aggressively for fathers' rights in court.
