Fighting for Grandparent’s Rights

If you are a grandparent, you may need to know what your grandparent's rights are. There are many different circumstances in which this information may be beneficial for you to know. In instances of divorce, substance abuse, or teen pregnancy, many grandparents are suddenly finding themselves in need of legal advice as to the possible rights they may have to their grandchildren, whether it be in the form of visitation, or possibly even including custody.

In cases of drug use, or a parent going to jail, your grandchildren's safety may be an issue. Grandparents stepping in as parents are becoming a more common reality of modern life. Although many states have enacted grandparents' right laws, it is still very difficult to prove that as a grandparent you have the right to a relationship with your grandchildren. While it is getting a little easier for grandparents to have visitation with their grandchildren it is not within the normal course of things. The courts will look at the best interests of the child. In the case of a simple divorce, you need to realize that it won't be easy to get the visitation rights you want.
