Homer P Jordan IV
Homer P Jordan IV answered on Jan 22, 2020

If the father has not legitimized the child then he has no legal rights. Once he legitimizes then he can obtain legal rights. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558

Homer P Jordan IV answered on Jan 21, 2020

I agree with my colleague. There would have to be a reason why the step mother took her to urgent care. If there was something wrong with her then she was looking out for her best interest and trying to get her help. I don’t see how this has harmed the child or would be something to take legal...

Homer P Jordan IV answered on Jan 21, 2020
