Grandparents' rights are an area of family law that is often misunderstood. In some cases, a person might wonder exactly why grandparents should have any rights to their grandchildren at all if the parents don't want their children around them. Interestingly, grandparents' rights are meant more for the grandchildren than the grandparents.
We know that the last thing grandparents wants is to be shut out of their grandchild's life. This can happen if there is a disagreement about how the child should be raised. It can also happen in other cases, such as when one of the child's parents passes away and the living parent doesn't involve the deceased parent's parents.
If that is where your case begins, we can help you. There is no reason why the death of your child should mean that you can't remain involved with your grandchild. If both of your grandchild's parents have passed away, you might be the only link that your grandchild has to the family.
