Practical Advice & Compassionate Representation
In most circumstances, it is in the child's best interest to have continued and regular contact and interaction with the child's grandparents. Grandparents can provide the kind of care and support, infused with wisdom and experience, which a grandchild needs. When grandparents' rights are granted, they are usually granted in the form of visitation or partial custody.
- Circumstances that may influence a grandparent to seek visitation or custody of their grandchild include:
- Parents' divorce or separation
- Chemical dependency of a parent
- Disease, mental illness, or death of a parent
- Incarceration of a parent
- Abuse or neglect by a parent
- Prior agreement between parent and grandparents
- Grandparent Rights in Pennsylvania
- Custody of at-Risk Children Can Be Granted to Grandparents
- Grandparents become essential for nontraditional families
