What Is a Legitimation Action?
If a child is born out of wedlock, the biological father may bring a legitimation
action. This action will allow the dad
to be recognized as the child’s biological father for purposes of inheritance. It will also allow the dad to exercise visitation and petition the court for joint or sole legal and physical custody. As part of this action, the court will order that child support be paid by the dad.
