He gets a lawyer. If he has not legitimated his child, he must first do that. Legitimization allows him to seek visitation (or custody).
Under Georgia law, the mother has custody and rights to a child born out of wedlock. Your friend needs to obtain legal counsel and file a petition to legitimate. Custody and visitation can be addressed in that action.
