Long-Standing Georgia Law Stands Between Fatherhood and Children. Legitimation is a policy that determines the legal status of non-married fathers in relation to his child. When children are legitimized, fathers have the right and authority to make decisions in support of their well-being. In all states but Georgia, legitimation for non-married fathers is determined at the time of paternity.
