Grandparents are often forgotten in a divorce. The children’s parents are concerned about their own parenting time, child support, and other divorce issues such as division of marital property. What are the grandparents’ rights? Do grandparents have a right to visitation? Grandparents’ rights are an evolving area of the law. If you are concerned about your grandchildren and your ability to maintain a relationship with them, my firm, Stolar & Associates, A Professional Law Corporation, can help.

How Do Family Law Courts View Grandparents’ Rights?
Feelings can run high in a divorce. Parents are confused and even angry. That anger may be directed against grandma and grandpa. Grandparents’ rights are not guaranteed in California law. If both parents do not want you to see your grandchildren, a judge would need strong reasons to overcome that decision. I can help represent your best interests.
Here are some questions a judge will consider when deciding on legal issues:
- Have you been involved in the support and care of your grandchild? Many grandparents have stepped in and taken over the care of their grandchildren when the parents are unable or unwilling to care for them.
- What is in the best interests of the child? This is a question the family court judge will always use to make a decision about children. Will the child be better off by having regular visits with the grandparents?
