Grandparent Visitation

Grandparent visitation is a legal right that grandparents in some jurisdictions may have to have court-ordered contact (or visitation) with their grandchildren. In the United States, all 50 states have a “grandparent visitation” statute that allows grandparents to request a court grant them the legal right to maintain ongoing contact with their grandchildren.

When it comes to making decisions for their children, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that parents have the final word. But what happens when parents decide that their children should not see or spend time with their grandparents? Although grandparents have rights, they are not automatic. Grandparents must ask the court to enforce them.

The law surrounding grandparents’ rights is complicated. Plus, the facts of each case are unique. For more detailed, specific information, please contact the Perlmutter Law Firm.
