Grandparent rights are a complex topic, but our team has the right experience to help you navigate the nuances.
When parents divorce, it’s not easy for anyone involved–not for the separating partners, and definitely not for the kids. In addition, many people don’t realize that a divorce will affect the dynamic of not just the immediate household but also the extended families. For instance, grandparent rights can be significantly impacted by the changes a divorce brings and are often entirely dependent on the unique circumstances of the people involved. The topic of grandparent rights is an incredibly sensitive one for many families, and our team at the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter acknowledges the challenges that this issue can bring up. Our team takes the time to truly understand your family’s specific dynamic, and you can count on us to tailor our advice to your unique situation.
Before you consult with our team on matters of grandparent rights, you should know that these rights will be impacted by multiple factors, and that the court’s priority will always be the welfare of the children. Laws concerning parental visitation and custody are already strict, and grandparent rights to the same are often limited. This is especially true for grandparents of adopted grandchildren, as the court is less likely to grant visitation to a grandparent who shares no biological relationship with the children in question.
