Grandparents have rights, too

Has your son recently divorced?  Are you a grandparent who is having difficulty seeing your grandchild as often as you used to?

Don’t be alarmed.  You may have grounds for visitation rights with your grandchildren, even if it is against one or both of the parents’ wishes.  California law states that if an individual has a relationship with a child in a familial capacity, he or she can sue for visitation rights – the individual does not have to be biologically or legally related to the child.

If you are a grandparent who is not being allowed to visit with your grandchild because of a divorce, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who can help you discover and implement ways to protect your special bond with your grandchildren.
