Everyone suffers when a couple divorce, even grandparents..
Due to the emotional nature of divorce, it isn’t uncommon for grandparents to feel that they will no longer see their grandchildren after the divorce is final.
An angry spouse might want to prevent grandparents from visiting their grandchildren during and after divorce.
Today, states recognize this common occurrence and have taken steps to protect the rights of grandparents.
Every state has different laws regarding divorce, including the rights of grandparents’ visitation rights.
Often, grandparents are the primary caretakers of their grandchildren. When grandparents raise their grandchildren, it’s important to seek legal representation to ensure that custody issues are dealt with in a court of law.
If grandparents are raising their grandchildren because the birth parents are unfit, a simple verbal agreement is not enough. Grandparents must ensure that their rights are protected.
If you are dealing with custody or visitation issues regarding your grandchildren, you must have the legal counsel of an experienced family lawyer.
