Custody Issues for Grandparents
There are a number of things to evaluate when grandparents are seeking to modify the custody of their grandchildren. If you are seeking to take action with the custody of your grandchild you may want to contact an attorney for legal advice. However, even if you are not personally seeking custody – there are a number of things that you can do to protect your grandchildren. Some of the factors that will be considered when custody issues are being evaluated are –
- The relationship of the grandparent and grandchild
- If the grandchild resided with the parent for a length of time
- If the parent is able to provide the proper needs
- The grandparent can also file a third party request
We can help you evaluate the appropriate course of action when determining the case with your grandchild. You may still have some legal remedies if –
- A step parent has adopted the child
- The parent is deceased
- The grandparent relationship doesn’t negatively impact the relationship of child and parent
