  • Can he legally take our child? Georgia

    Hello,
    I'm new here and really ignorant about these kinds of laws especially in GA. I had my baby in December and the father and I were not married at the time but have since been married. He signed the birth certificate but there was no paternity test. I know he is the father but does he legally have the right to take the child? It looks like I'm at the start of a nasty divorce and he is threatening to take our son back to his hometown while I work. Thanks for any feedback in advance and please let me know if anything needs to be clarified.

    You need a custody, visitation and support order. In getting that order ask for ruling on taking the children outside of a certain area for the purpose of changing their residence

      Georgia requires a separate legitimization process - has he done this, Mom?

            Then no, he does not actually have equal rights to your child.

            File for divorce, and request temporary custody pending a legal finding of paternity and final custody determination.
