Pursuing Grandparent’s Rights

By Hutchinson Law  Apr. 20, 2011 1:05p

Although a grandparent’s rights may not be clearly defined, that does not mean that a grandparent has no rights to visitation, or custody of their grandchild. Every situation is unique when it comes to the relationship between grandparent and grandchild and so is each set of circumstances.

Perhaps you raised your grandchild from the start and the biological parent dropped back into the picture, wanting their child back, even though they have not established a relationship with their young child. Or, you could be in the situation where your grandchild is living in a home where you are sure there is domestic violence, alcohol abuse, or drug abuse, or neglect taking place in the very presence of your grandchild and you want to remove them from the dangerous environment for their safety. Or maybe you have had a close relationship with your grandchildren and their parents were recently divorced, and the child’s mother or father whom they live with, are not allowing you visitation of your grandchildren. All situations give cause and concern to seek the advice and help from a seasoned Jacksonville family law attorney.

Grandparent’s Have Rights Too

In essence, when any family member actively pursues a relationship with a child or their grandchildren, it is obvious that the relationship is to the child’s benefit. The people who attempt to avoid contact with a child are the ones who harm the child. When a grandparent is forced to take legal action in order to preserve and protect their relationship with their grandchild, they generally have substantial cause to do so. Children need as many stable, healthy influences in their life as possible, and no child gets spoiled by too much love and affection.
