As a grandparent, you also have rights to a child. If a California court decides that it is in the child’s best interest, you may be granted custodial or visitation rights. However, these types of cases are difficult, as parents’ rights supercede grandparents’ rights. In addition, there many be legal obligations to any grandparent who is trying to obtain these rights.
In order to achieve custody or visitation rights, you, as a grandparent, need an experienced and professional lawyer to explain all the qualifications and requirements that must be met in order to be given grandparent rights. At the Law Offices of Christian Schank & Associates, our family lawyers and attorneys will help guide you through what could otherwise be a costly and difficult procedure.
