Rancho Cucamonga Grandparents' Rights Lawyer

Reputable Counsel for Rancho Cucamonga Grandparents' Rights

While there are no grandparents' rights, per se, state law does recognize that visitation with grandparents may be in the child's best interests. Under certain circumstances, the court may grant visitation to the grandparents, even when this is against the wishes of the parent or parents. If you are a grandparent seeking visitation with your grandchildren, you should consult with an experienced Cucamonga grandparents' rights attorney.

Compassionate and Effective Grandparents' Rights Attorney in Rancho Cucamonga

The general presumption of the courts is that fit parents will always act in the child's best interests and have the right to make their own decisions. However, the court may override that presumption in some cases. As a grandparent, you have the right to petition the court for reasonable visitation with your grandchild. In order to grant this visitation, the court must:

  1. Find that there was a pre-existing relationship and a bond between grandparent and grandchild
  2. Balance the rights of the parents to make decisions about their child against the best interests of the child in having visitation with grandparent(s).

Generally, visitation is not granted to grandparents while the parents are married. However, there are exceptions. For example, when the parents are living separately, or when one of the parents joins the grandparents' petition for visitation.

As a seasoned Rancho Cucamonga divorce lawyer, I can help you determine the best way to proceed in your individual case. I pride myself on compassionate, honest answers and for achieving real results for my clients.
