How does a father legitimize his child?
The most common form of legitimation is when a child is born to a mother and father who are married. One way an illegitimate child can be legitimized is by the reputed father (meaning the man that is believed to be the father of the child) marries the child’s mother after the child’s birth (N.C.G.S. 49-12).
Can a mother refuse legitimation?
If you were never married to the mother of your children, Georgia law assigns all rights to custody and visitation to the mother. She is free to deny visitation until you file your legitimation case and get a court order. Contrary to popular belief, there is no presumption in favor of the mother.
Does marriage legitimize a child?
