  • My daughter is expecting twins so called sperm donor married another person. Where does she stand with financial support ?

    They were together 2 yrs - he decided he wanted to marry another girl .Also he never divorced his first wife- so is this marriage legal?

    Morris’s Answer

    If it is an actual sperm donor it should be anonymous?

    I assume therefore that you are being sarcastic and if so and if paternity can be proven it is the right of the children to be supported under Georgia law. Child support will be ordered by the appropraite court. She needs to retain a family law attorney in the Savannah area.

  • Where can I find a document online to terminate rights and change child's name?

    My child's father has agreed to sign a legal document giving up all potential rights and granting me permission to change his last name. Is there a site online where I can type this professionally to where it stands in court?

    Morris’s Answer

    You need to cosult with a local attorney and discuss the facts in detail to determine whether the releif you need is something you can handle yourself or if you will require an attorney. Typically it is not acceptable to "give up your rights". In most states, including Georgia, the child has a right to be supported and the courts frown on anyone trying to avoid this obligation.
