On August 14, 2013, the Georgia Court of Appeals published its opinion in the case of Chandler v. Rohner. This is an important case for father's rights. The trial court committed several reversible errors -- including an attempt to terminate a father's parental rights in a legitimation action. In rendering its opinion, the Court of Appeals held that such an action by the trial court was a mere nullity that required reversal.
Over the past few years, there has been a common item topping the New Year's resolution lists of many parents in Georgia and throughout the United States: to conclusively determine the paternity of their child or children.
A paternity lawsuit has reportedly been filed against a member of the Atlanta Falcons professional football team, according to recent reports on various entertainment websites.
