Committed To Compassion And Integrity
When your relationship with your grandchild is threatened, I can help you work through the process of seeking visitation, child custody or guardianship. I approach these sensitive situations with compassion and integrity. I understand that you are going through a stressful situation, and I will provide intelligent legal guidance based on your goals.
Determining Your Rights As A Grandparent
In Pennsylvania, your rights as a grandparent are dependent upon your relationship with the child and the child’s best interests. Where parents are separated or divorced, or if a parent dies, or in an emergency situation where the safety of the child is at risk, grandparents may have a better opportunity for court ordered custodial rights.
There are situations in which grandparents become temporary caretakers of their grandchildren. In those cases, you may have more rights. For example, if your grandchild has lived with you for a year or longer, you are afforded certain rights. As your lawyer, I will help you determine exactly what your rights are, so we can pursue the best approach for your situation.
