Understand the options you have to see your grandchildren

As we recently discussed, grandparents have limited rights to be involved in the life of a grandchild. It is necessary for grandparents who want to exercise their rights as grandparents to learn about what the law says regarding these situations. We know that it isn't easy to sit back and wait while you try to get things worked out, but this is often necessary.

One of the times when grandparents might want to assert their rights is when the grandchild's parents refuse to let the grandparents see the grandchild. Typically, the court will assume that the parents have the right to make decisions about how to raise the child.

Of course, this sometimes isn't in the child's best interests. When the grandparents think that something is amiss and that they need to step in, they might want to think twice before automatically turning to the courts.

Sometimes, grandparents can work with the help of a mediator to work something out with the child's parents. This might help them to work through their own issues so that the grandparents can be a part of the child's life. This could be as simple as visitation time with the child, but even that is better than nothing.

No matter how the grandparents' rights case has to be handled, we can help you to find possible solutions. These cases often contain very personal information, such as issues in the relationship dynamics. We can work with you to determine what kinds of arrangements you might be able to work out with your grandchild's parents so that you can decide how to move forward with your case.
