Dealing with Georgia paternity issues like adoption

Fathers' rights is becoming a popular issue in the United States as men fight for the same parental benefits as women. More and more dads stay home to care for their children while moms work. As a whole, fathers are becoming more involved in the lives of their children. So, when Atlanta parents divorce or split up, it is sometimes the men who are awarded child custody. Fathers' rights may affect some men negatively, however, as they are sometimes wrongfully accused of being a child's biological parent. Read on to learn more about these types of paternity issues and how a lawyer can help resolve them.

The courts have a duty to look out for the best interests of the child. Ideally, children have two parents to care for them emotionally and financially. When a child is born out of wedlock, a man may deny that the child is his. So when there is evidence that a man is potentially a child's father, the court may act hastily and order child support. However, some accusations are unfounded and even if a man has had a previous relationship with a woman that alone does not automatically make it his child.

A man could be forced to pay child support for a child that is not even his. If the man refuses to pay up, the state could put liens on his property, revoke any professional licenses, force him to give up his driver's license and forbid him to obtain a passport. So, there is a lot at stake, which is why legal representation is key.
