As a grandparent, it can be heartbreaking watching your child go through the emotion and trauma of a divorce. It can also be frightening to not know how the court’s custody ruling will affect your relationship with your grandchildren. You may feel helpless and out of the loop, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Contact an Oklahoma City family lawyer as soon as possible to discuss grandparents’ rights.
The bond between a grandparent and grandchild can be just as strong as a parent and child, sometimes even more so. You would do anything for your grandchildren, so the thought of a bitter ex-spouse limiting your visitation rights because of your son or daughter’s problems can be devastating.
With the help of a skilled family law attorney, however, you can fight to secure a more active role in the lives of your grandchildren. In some cases, you can even fight to gain primary custody or guardianship of your grandchildren. If one or both parents are deceased, or both parents have problems with drugs, alcohol, or domestic violence, we can advise you of your rights and help you build a solid case.
