If you are the grandparent, do you have visitation rights following a divorce? A lot depends upon the relationship you have built with your grandchild. The truth is, if your adult son or daughter isn’t the child’s primary custodial parent and the custodial parent objects to contact with you, getting visitation rights as the kid’s grandparents will be tough. If you can show, however, that losing contact will be detrimental to the child’s emotional or physical welfare, you may be granted a specific parenting schedule. Otherwise, your visitation rights will be relegated to the time your adult son or daughter has parenting time. If you are seeking visitation rights or guardianship of your grandson or granddaughter, contact Lauby, Mankin & Lauby by calling 888.959.8508 or emailing us online.
If you are concerned about losing your important contact with your grandchild after divorce, start fighting to protect your rights as early in the divorce process as possible. At Lauby, Mankin & Lauby LLP, we represent grandparents, step-parents and extended family members who are seeking visitation and parenting rights over a child following divorce.
Often, securing visitation rights for grandparents means sitting down with the custodial parent to negotiate a fair visitation schedule. Most custodial parents are reasonable about their child’s needs, even if the anger about their ex-spouse lingers after the settlement. Our attorneys are skilled mediators and have had good success helping grandparents remain in vital in their grandchildren’s lives.
