The Act amends provisions of Georgia’s domestic relations statutes to allow a court to deny a biological father’s legitimation petition or to terminate his parental rights when there is clear and convincing evidence that the child was conceived as a result of rape. If the court denies the biological father’s legitimation petition, the child is still capable of inheriting from the father, but the father is not capable of benefiting from the child.
