Helping grandparents assert their child visitation rights

Children who have grandparents in their lives typically love spending time with them whenever they can and especially during family gatherings and holidays. The close relationship between a grandparent and grandchild spans the generations and usually helps hold a family together. When a child’s parents decide to part ways, however, the bond between grandparent and grandchild can be disrupted. The separation can become even greater as the court focuses on child custody and the noncustodial parent’s visitation rights.

In many divorce cases in California, grandparents’ rights are rarely discussed or addressed by divorcing parties. They are usually busy dealing with property division, child support and child custody. That does not have to be the case, however. All grandparents can secure their rights to see or visit their grandchildren despite the divorce of the children’s parents. As explained on our family law page, every family law decision concerning children should ensure that the best interests of the children are considered first and foremost.

When it comes to grandparents’ rights, our legal team pays complete attention to the details of the case in order to secure and maintain the grandparent-grandchild relationship. We believe that the involvement of grandparents in their grandchildren’s lives makes the children emotionally healthier.

It can help children through their parent’s divorce because their grandparents are there to guide and care for them. When unmarried parents separate, grandparents can exercise their rights to reasonable partial custody or visitation rights and thus help their grandchildren transition into their new lives.

Helping grandparents in child-custody disputes and visitation matters is one of our specialty areas. We know the challenges that often arise from divorce involving minor children. It is our job to address any disputes without letting the divorce affect the bonds between grandparents and grandchildren.
