If you believe you have fathered a child in Georgia, but you or the child's mother are not completely sure the child is biologically yours, you may want to establish paternity to ensure you have certain legal rights to the child. Conversely, if paternity is yet to be established, you may find yourself forced to submit to testing if you are involved in a child support case.
Divorce is not easy for any couple. Marriage is supposed to be a lifelong commitment, and regardless of whether a divorce was your idea or your partner's, ending something you expected to be lifelong is sure to stir up strong emotions and inevitable challenges. Nowadays, many same-sex couples face additional challenges that many male-female couples looking to divorce do not. This is largely because there is very little precedent for same-sex divorce cases in states such as Georgia, where this type of marriage only became legal relatively recently. Inconsistent laws and a lack of prior cases to look back on means many same-sex couples find themselves tied up in lengthy legal battles, which can impact many areas of their lives.
