But if the father ever tries to get full physical custody of the child in the future, it might not be good for the mother. However, she can never be refused visitation.

Can a Father get joint legal and physical custody of a newborn in GA?

Yes, but there are steps you must take to get to that point. First, you will need to file a petition to legitimate child and modification of child custody (unless you are legally married to the mother). Normally, in most Georgia cases, you will automatically be granted joint legal custody, but not necessarily joint physical. Determination of physical custody will depend on MANY different factors. You may have to prove the mother unfit... more than that, you will have to show that the 'change in custody' will be in the best interest of the minor child... not the parties.
