Free Legitimation Assistance When You Join the Brotherhood

Through a partnership with the Resource Justice Center, Legal Aid, Georgia State and several other supporters we are able to provide legitimation workshops where we help FIRE program graduates and those registered in cohorts understand the process for completing their legitimation paperwork and filing their petitions on-line and in person.

Volunteers from Legal Aid, top law firms, Georgia State law students, FIRE alums and other partners answer questions, and provide examples of properly completed documents.

As a requirement to be eligible for a legitimation 102 session you must watch our Intro to legitimation video and complete the associated in-take questionnaire.

Get exposed to what truly matters!

Are you having a hard time balancing work, family, and personal life, especially in this pandemic? Do you want to unlock your next level of growth and capability?

You-Focused Design

The NextLevel Fatherhood training is crafted into 10 modules and spreads across 10-weeks of learning for members.

Major societal issues such as employment, incarceration, child support, and co-parenting, to mention a few, are hotspots on the program’s schedule.

Therefore, it serves as an excellent place for dads who are trying to navigate these challenges.
