Your Rights And Options As A Grandparent
For a grandparent to obtain court-ordered child custody and/or visitation, the court will want to see evidence that the child or children are living in an environment that endangers their physical health or emotional development. For example, if any of the following applies to the custodial parent, a grandparent may be able to obtain custody:
- Drug use
- Alcohol abuse
- Alleged child abuse, child neglect or sexual abuse
- Being deemed “unfit”
As family law attorneys, we are familiar with these issues as they relate to divorce and nondivorce matters. For example, after a divorce when the children spend time at both parents’ homes, it may become apparent that one home is not fit for the children to live in. We also handle cases where the parents were never married.
While grandparents are limited in their rights, when there is a valid reason for the grandparents to seek custody or visitation, our lawyers provide the experienced legal help they need.
