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.

How can you get joint custody or physical custody when mother has sole custody of child?

There is a difference between physical and legal custody. The court can award joint legal custody to the parents and determine that one parent will have physical custody. It can also award joint physical and legal custody with the child sharing her time equally at the homes of the parents. Joint legal custody custody is usually reserved for parents who get along and are willing to raise their child on a solid foundation of cooperation. Couples who do not get along are not good candidates for joint legal custody and that factor will be considered in the decision by the judge. The father can petition for a modification of the custody order but he will need to provide evidence that the modification is warranted, usually by showing there has been a change in the circumstances that caused the judge to award sole custody to the mother. In order to convince the court to take physical custody from the mother, the father would need to provide evidence that the change would be in the best interest of the child based on the unfitness of the mother as a parent. See the related question link for factors the court may consider if asked to declare a parent unfit. He should consult with an attorney who can review the situation and explain both his options under state laws and his chances of success in the particular court. An attorney could present the father's petition in the best possible manner.

Father and mother never married children born in Florida father now lives in Georgia does he have to legitimize them in Georgia to have them come live with him?

If the children live with their mother in Florida and the father never established his paternity legally, a Georgia court would have no jurisdiction over the children. Their mother has sole legal custody. If the father wants to establish his "parental rights" he will need to establish his paternity where the children are domiciled. Once he has established that he is their father he can request joint custody or a visitation order and the mother can request a child support order if the children are to remain in her physical custody.If the parties want to make the change in custody by consent of the parties he should consult with an attorney to determine how that can be accomplished.If the children live with their mother in Florida and the father never established his paternity legally, a Georgia court would have no jurisdiction over the children.
