Grandparent Rights Attorney

Can grandparents have rights in custody cases?

As a grandparent, you have likely built a very special relationship with your grandchild or grandchildren and are interested in maintaining that connection. If you are in a situation in which your communication with your grandchild is unfairly severed (such as after a divorce in the family), you may have to fight for your right to stay in your grandchild’s life. If you wish to be granted the right of visitation, our divorce attorney at Karen Bosshart, Esq., LLC is here to help.

Some of the factors that are taken into account in grandparent rights cases include:

  • The relationship between the grandparent and the grandchild
  • Whether preventing visitation would negatively impact the child
  • Whether the grandparent has legal standing (such as one or both of the grandchild’s parents have died).
  • The child’s best interests overall
