Get help finding the Right Family Law Lawyer for your case
Increasing divorce rates have been playing a significant role in changes in the relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren. Unfortunately, most grandparents are not awarded grandparental rights during a child custody case. This is because of bad feelings, the death of one parent or the parents with custody that purposefully breaks the ties of the children with their grandparents.
Grandparental rights is a relatively new concept, but it is getting more and more recognized, as the role of grandparents in a child's life is become more important. Most child custody cases overlook or ignore grandparental rights and courts determine what's best for the grandchild.
When a divorce threatens the grandparent - grandchild relationship, a grandparental rights lawyer can advocate the rights of grandparents. A grandparental rights lawyer can represent grandparents in court, so they can successfully petition visitation rights or custody rights. A lawyer can raise a good defense on your behalf so that the court can act in the best interest of the child.
If you are a grandparent that fears being at risk for losing visitation rights with your grandchildren, a grandparental rights lawyer can help. Grandparental rights lawyers can work in your defense to make sure you have visitation rights as a grandparent.
