Grandparents: What rights do they have?
Conflicts happen in even the best of families and unfortunately, not all conflicts are easily resolved. Ultimately, unresolved conflicts may cause a lot of tension between family members, and can lead to strained familial relationships, especially if a divorce occurs.
When it comes to navigating a divorce, often families are unaware of how they impact the greater family dynamic. For example, grandparent rights are entirely dependent on the circumstances.
We at the Law Office of Janice V. Coulter understand that the nature of grandparent rights are an incredibly sensitive topic for families. We take the time to listen and understand your specific family dynamic to give you the best counsel for your family.
In North Carolina, grandparent rights are impacted by several factors that prioritize the child’s interests when it comes to visitation and custody laws. This is why oftentimes grandparent rights are limited. For example, the court may grant visitation rights to biological grandparents but not to grandparents of adopted children, unless the grandparent can prove a substantial relationship exists.
The Law Office of Janice V. Coulter has over 35 years of experience to provide you with the legal support you need when it comes to understanding your rights as a grandparent. Give us a call today and we will fight for you with your best interests in mind.
