My question involves paternity law for the State of: GA
I was separated from my husband, but not legally divorced when I got pregnant by another man. That man and I have been together ever since. He was there in the delivery room with me. At this time we were informed that our daughter can not carry his last name or he cannot be listed on her birth certificate bc I was still "legally" married to someone else at time of her conception. We were told it would take a court order to get her biological father placed on her birth certificate and her name changed. We were told that it must go through superior court, but we could file it ourselves we didn't necessarily need a lawyer to represent us. How do we go about this? We have no clue what paperwork is required or where to begin. My divorce decree plainly states at which point my ex and I quit sharing the same home and that no children were product of that marriage. Please help!!
