Born out of wedlock
By David Walker, Attorney at Law
In Georgia, legitimation allows the biological father to be recognized by law as the legal father when a child is born out of wedlock. The biological father may file a petition for legitimation of the child. The superior and juvenile courts have concurrent jurisdiction in legitimation cases. The superior court has general jurisdiction but the juvenile court may become the proper court in certain circumstances.
