What is the name of your state? Georgia. Me and my husband have been raising his son for 21/2 years now. My husbands son is four years old now and on christmas day 2000 the childs mother dropped him off and we didn't hear from her in months. As the years went by she would call every now and then to see her son but it wasn't often. I logged down every time she called to talk to him or came by to see him. My husband filed some papers at the clerk of courts about 2 months ago to get the child ligitimated because they were never married. well when the court date came arount the mother showed up with an attorney and she said she wanted joint custody with my husband being the primary care giver and she wants standard visitation. The judge told them to come to an agreement and come back to court on June 23rd. Her lawyer typed up the paper work for joint custody with the mother getting visitation and told them both to come to the office on June 20th so they could sign him before June 23rd so he could get the judges signature. My husband went up there to sign them but she never did. This is what she wanted and she hasn'y signed them yet and it is now Tuesday June 24th and court was yesturday. What is going to happen if she doesn't sign the papers? Will my husband still beable to get the child ligitimated? In the paper work there are four things going to be done which is the ligitiamtion, joint custody, visitation, and child support. She soesn't want to pay child support. She is on tanf right now and she doesn't have to pay until she stops receiving welfare. My husband signed this paper work along with her attorney. She is the only one that didn't sign it. Did my husband do anything wrong by signing it?
