CUSTODY RIGHTS & VISITATION RIGHTS

Whether you are looking to increase your visitation rights or modify custody from one parent to another, the Sellers Law Firm has the experience to help you reach the result you’re looking to achieve.

LEGITIMATION

Fathers often find themselves on the outside looking in when a child is born out-of-wedlock. Unfortunately in Georgia, until a father establishes custody and visitation rights through the court system he has no custody or visitation rights to his child.  More importantly, with recent changes in the law, a child born out-of-wedlock must be legitimized through a court order (signing documents at the hospital is no longer enough). Even though a father may not have custody or visitation rights absent legitimation, he still has an obligation to pay child support. By filing a legitimation action, a father can ensure that he establishes custody and visitation rights and enjoys time to bond with and parent his child. At the Sellers Law Firm, we want to help you have that relationship with your child. If you have any questions about the legitimation process, or if you are ready to hire an attorney to handle your case, give us a call today at the Sellers Law Firm: where clients become family.

NAME CHANGE

Looking to fix an error on your birth certificate? Or perhaps you are ready to take that next step and let your child take on your significant others last name? A Name Change Petition can address these and many other issues when you are looking to change your name or the name of your minor child. At the Sellers Law Firm, we make this process as easy as possible by drafting the required legal documents, publishing notice of your name change, getting your name change order, and processing your name change with vital records. Name changes can be a technical process, and the Sellers Law Firm is here to make sure the process is handled correctly. Give us a call today at the Sellers Law Firm: where clients become family.

NON-PARENT CUSTODY & VISITATION

When discussing custody and/or visitation cases, many people often assume that only parents have a say in custody and visitation matters regarding their children, but this is a common misconception.  Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and adult siblings have the ability to seek custody and/or visitation of children in certain situations.  If you happen to be a non-parent but are interested in learning more about seeking custody or visitation as a non-parent, give us a call today at the Sellers Law Firm: where clients become family.
