Danbury Grandparents' Rights Lawyer

Understanding Grandparental Rights

When a divorce rips apart family ties, grandparents can often be affected by the outcome of the dissolution, losing their rights to visit their grandchildren. This is not always in the best interest of the children and family law courts more and more are taking the welfare of the child as one of the most important issues to address.

A Danbury lawyer can assist you in determining your rights as grandparents to have visitation and possibly even custody of your grandchildren in certain circumstances.

Protecting Your Rights as Grandparents in Danbury

Children can develop strong bonds with their grandparents, regardless of which side of the family they are from. When a divorce occurs and custody goes to either spouse, the "in-laws" may very well not be in favor with the custodial spouse, who refuses them access to the grandchildren. At Jowdy & Jowdy, we understand your rights to visitation and what might be best for the children. A divorce can be painful enough for a child without them losing the love and support they have always known from their grandparents.

When parents die or are unfit to have custody of the children, grandparents can petition the court for custody of the children. If it can be shown that a stable and loving environment can be provided, there have been instances of custody being granted to grandparents. The firm can present your petition in family court where a judge can evaluate the relationship you have had with your grandchildren and make a decision based on the best interests of the children. With 40+ years of experience in legal matters, you can trust their caring attorneys to make a strong presence on your behalf.
