3rd party custody

Grandparents’ Rights

CAN GRANDPARENTS PETITION FOR RIGHTS OR CUSTODY?

Under very limited circumstances, courts may enable grandparents or other qualified third parties to petition the circuit court for visitation of a minor child.

One of the casualties of a couple’s divorce is often the estrangement of grandparents and relatives from the couple’s child or children.

Third-party custody cases, whether they involve grandparents or not, are complicated. It is likely in your best interest to hire an experienced attorney. As with most situations involving children, their best interest takes precedence over parental preference and convenience.

This area of family law continues to evolve. Goldberg Jones attorneys continue to monitor this evolution and are prepared to address and assess your custody concerns with respect to grandparents rights.
