Athens, GA asked in Child Custody, Child Support, Divorce and Family Law for Georgia

Q: What form do I use to amend a child to an existing order?

Two kids are already on the legitimation paperwork. I had to wait until DNA confirmed the third child and now that it has, the judge told me to amend the third child in order to proceed with legitimating all three for the same order. I have looked all over for such a form and can not find one. I would really appreciate some help on this so that I can get back to seeing my kids.

A: There is no form to accomplish this. If the case is still pending, you need to amend the petition or answer to add the third child to the action. If the action is no longer pending, you will need to file a new action for the third child or to modify the previous order to include the third child. I recommend speaking with an attorney to discuss the most effective method of resolving this for you.
