Grandparents' Rights to Visitation
There are many factors a court will consider when deciding whether to grant grandparents visitation. A court will consider the best interest of the child. However, the United States Supreme Court has recognized the fundamental right of fit parents to the custody and care of their children.
There are many factors involved in whether courts will order grandparent visitation, and because of the complexity of the issues, consulting with an attorney is very important. Our family law attorneys will sit down with you and discuss your situation, then explain your legal options.

Grandparents Can Obtain Child Custody in Certain Situations
In some situations, a grandparent may see a compelling need to obtain custody over grandchildren. For example, some grandparents are already in a position where they essentially have custody, but find themselves without the legal right to make certain important decisions on behalf of the children.
Our firm will advocate for your rights and for the outcome that is best for your grandchildren, if you are a grandparent. If you are a parent, we can assist you in defending against a meritless claim for custody or visitation. Contact our office today.
