You can Fight for the Right to Visit your Grandchildren!

California law allows for grandparents to have visitation rights under a number of difference circumstances. If parents are divorced or permanently separated, a grandparent can ask the court for visitation rights. In order to have such a request granted, it must be shown that there is a "pre-existing relationship" between a grandparent and grandchild, and that visitation would be in the child's best interests.

There are very specific provisions required to obtain grandparents' visitation rights. Your attorney will need to understand how to present the body of evidence proving that your grandchild's welfare will be irreparably harmed if visitation rights are disallowed.

The courts know how important it is to preserve the child-grandparent relationship. We know what judges expect when making their decision about granting grandparents' visitation rights.

If you are a grandparent who recognizes the value of visitation rights with your grandchild, Haslam & Thorne, LLP, has the experience you can rely on. We have helped many grandparents secure an agreement to retain rights to maintain contact with their grandchildren following a divorce or remarriage of the parents. We are ready to help you fight for what you know is best for your child.
