Grandparents Do Have Rights

As a grandparent it is quite normal to feel unease and nervous when your child goes through a divorce. You may worry that after the divorce you will not get to see your grandchildren.

When it comes to family matters such as this, grandparents do have rights and can take legal action when needed.

A Firm That Understands

The family law attorneys at D'Angelo & Grabow have over 30 years of combined experience with divorce, child custody and grandparents' rights. If you are unsure about how to ask for visitation or are meeting with resistance when it comes to seeing your grandchildren, speak with an experienced family law attorney in your area.

At D'Angelo & Grabow, we know how valuable and important the grandparents-grandchild bond is. Our attorneys regularly meet with grandparents to offer advice and counsel on the best way to ensure that they get to see their grandkids. We also offer legal support when one parent dies or if a parent becomes incapable of caring for the children.

Feeling Shut Out

Relationships are more than rights and agreements and legal requirements. Relationships are deeply emotional and have long and sometimes complex histories. At D'Angelo & Grabow, we understand that dramatic changes in families can profoundly affect grandparents. After a divorce or the death of one parent you may feel shut out of your grandchildren's lives. We can help you understand your rights and what you need to do legally to ensure that you do play a part in your grandchildren's lives.

Working With Mediators

In some cases you may be sent to work through issues with a county social worker. If this is the case you will not be alone. We will guide you through this process and provide resources and support.
