Rancho Cucamonga Grandparents’ Rights Lawyer
Recognizing the Role of Grandparents to Children
In recent years judgments in favor of grandparents’ rights have been increasing. No longer are the parents of divorcing or separating couples sitting idly by while their grandchildren grow up without them. It has been proven that in cases of separation or divorce, the children of the couple need the support of extended family more than ever in order to make it through the ordeal. Many courts are finding it within the best interests of the children that grandparent’s visitation rights are awarded. There are also some cases, however, when it does not serve the children to be exposed to their grandparents. It is necessary to enlist the service of my firm so you can have an experienced Rancho Cucamonga family law attorney on your side to achieve the outcome you desire in a case of grandparent’s rights.

Factors in a Grandparents’ Rights Petition
Grandparents can petition the courts for the right to see their grandchildren when one of the parents has died, the parents are no longer married to one another, the parents are indefinitely or permanently separated, or when a case of family law is pending in the court system and visitation has become an issue.
There are several things that the California family courts look at when processing a request for grandparents’ rights.
These factors include:
- Is being exposed to the grandparent in the best interests of the children?
- Would granting grandparent rights infringe upon the rights of the parents?
- Is there an existing bond and relationship between the children and grandparents?
In any of these scenarios, the guidance of knowledgeable Rancho Cucamonga family law attorney is essential in order to confidently navigate the family court system.
