Establishing & Protecting Your Rights as a Grandparent

Typically, the most common assumption is that it is in the best interests of a child to reside with one or both biological parents. However, certain circumstances have shown that this is not always the case. Your child or the other parent of your grandchild may be keeping you from seeing them after a divorce or custody battle. If you believe it is in your grandchild's best interest to spend more time with you, you may have the right to petition for custody or visitation.

Visitation or custody may be granted to a grandparent when:

  • The child's parents have been separated or divorced for six or more months
  • One or both parents have passed away
  • The child has been staying with the grandparents for 12 or more months
  • The children are believed to be in an unsafe or unhealthy situation
  • The parents are unfit to raise the child
