Protecting Grandparents' Rights to Visitation & Custody

In a divorce, many people think about each parent's relationship to the child and how it may change. One facet of a divorce that many people may forget about, however, is the grandparents' relationship with the child. If one parent is keeping you from being involved in your grandchildren's life after a divorce, you may be able to take legal action. At Debbie Crosby Pelerose, P.C., our grandparents' rights lawyer in Marietta can provide you with legal counsel and assist you in pursuing visitation rights.

What Factors Are Considered in Visitation?

Visitation rights essentially allow the grandparent to spend time with the grandchild, typically following a specific schedule. For example, the custodial parent of the child may agree that you can take them on a three-hour visit every other weekend. When a third-party who is not the parent, such as a grandparent, request visitation rights, the courts typically consider whether or not that relationship would be beneficial to the child. Our goal is to illustrate how important your relationship with your grandchild is and why it should be preserved.

If you apply for visitation, the court may also consider:

  • If the grandparent filing is acting in good faith
  • If there is any history of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse
  • The existing custody or visitation arrangements
  • What effect the visits would have on the parent's time with their child
  • How long it has been since the grandparent had contact with the child
  • The relationship between the grandparent and each parent
