Grandparent Rights

Child custody and visitation disputes typically involve a child's parents, but not always. Grandparents are heavily involved in child-rearing in many families, sometimes as the primary caretakers. While parents are often the central figures in a child custody dispute, grandparents can also have their say with respect to visitation rights and even custody. FindLaw's Grandparent Rights section includes information and tips on grandparents' rights in child custody and visitation cases, including summaries of state laws and procedures, as well as factors considered when courts make custody and visitation decisions involving grandparents.
