Grandparent And Extended Family Rights

Do Grandparents Get Visitation Rights After Divorce?

Divorce doesn’t affect just parents and their children. Grandparents often worry about being able to maintain their relationship with their grandchildren when parents divorce, especially in contentious separations.

There are specific statutory guidelines for evaluating whether there is a legal basis to request visitation rights for grandparents or other relatives. At Brazil & Benske, LLC, our experienced family law attorneys can evaluate your case and determine whether you may be able to pursue visitation rights. If you are, we can guide you through the process and help you establish your legal rights.

In some cases, grandparents may want to seek temporary or permanent guardianship of their grandchildren if the parents are unable to care for the children. Our attorneys can help with this process as well.
