Fathers' Rights One of the Greatest Advantages That Our Clients Benefit From Is Our Experience

Paulding County Lawyer for Father's Rights

Helping Fathers in Cobb County, Douglas County & the Atlanta Metro Area

Georgia state law takes a neutral stance in respect the rights of fathers and mothers during divorce. However, there are many other family law issues where one parent may be given priority over another. For example, mothers are generally given legal priority over fathers for children who are born out of wedlock. There are many other situations where the father's legal rights may not be automatically protected by law.

No matter what legal issues you may be facing, you deserve to have your rights as a father protected. At Henrickson & Sereebutra, our Paulding County divorce attorneys use years of experience as former prosecutors to aggressively defend our clients in legal issues of all kinds. With the help of a skilled legal professional, you may be able to find positive resolutions to your troubles and secure the best interests of your family.

We help fathers assert and protect their rights in divorces and family law troubles of all kinds. Contact us today and learn more!

How Does the Court Establish Child Custody and Visitation?

According to state law, neither parent is given any innate priority over the other when determining child custody in a divorce (Georgia Code § 19-9-3). Judges will attempt to award custody in the best interests of the children. Unfortunately, fathers may still receive custody arrangements that do not fairly reflect the role they can play in their children's lives. We can help fathers assert their rights with custody and visitation modifications.

Paternity and Legitimation

Fathers automatically have rights to child custody and visitation to children born in wedlock. However, fathers do not have legal right to children born out of wedlock. Our Paulding County divorce lawyer assists fathers facing paternity actions brought against them. If you are attempting to gain legal parenting rights to your children, we may help you take action to legally recognize your role as a parent with legitimation!

The Consequences of Not Asserting Your Rights

Some fathers may not see a need to take legal action for their parenting rights. However, you may face a number of different issues if you fail to legally assert your rights. For example, without legitimizing your relationship with a child, the child may not be legally eligible to obtain an inheritance from you.

In other cases, mothers who have asserted their rights may take legal action to demand financial support—without establishing your own rights, you may not be able to defend yourself. Legally establishing your rights as a father may allow you to gain equal footing as a parent to your children and protect you from unfair action.
