Q: Hello. I had a child born out of wedlock in Georgia, and the hospital stated by law I had to give him my (mother) last

(continued) name. My husband at the time of birth was not present and lived in another state. Did the hospital legally have to provide paperwork to me (mother) to prove that my husband was not the father and so that the child can take the biological father’s last name?

If you were married, the child was not born out-of-wedlock, so the child is considered legitimate and the child of your husband. The hospital does not have to prove otherwise.
