The Manely Firm, P.C. in Atlanta, we represent mothers and fathers in these proceedings, taking
a common-sense approach that looks out for the best interests of the children
Helping You Establish the Paternity of Your Child
Over the course of two decades, our Marietta and Atlanta paternity lawyers
have been helping our clients establish
custody and visitation through legal actions involving:
Paternity: These actions are usually brought by mothers. In Georgia, paternity actions
are required before a father can be required to pay child support. Before
the court makes a paternity ruling, a DNA test may be required.
Legitimation: Legitimation actions are usually brought by fathers to help establish fathers'
rights to time with their children. These fathers want to legitimate their
children, gain the status of legal parent and have the ability to ask
for child custody or visitation rights.
When you consult with The Manely Firm, P.C., you will speak with one of
Georgia family law lawyers about your circumstances and your goals.
Whether you are a mother looking to establish paternity so that you may
seek child support, or you are a father who is seeking aggressive legal
representation in defending your
fathers' rights, we can help you.
We realize that legal issues involving children are often the most emotional
and challenging types of matters to amicably resolve. We strive to make
your paternity or legitimization actions as timely and cost-effective
