Ventura Grandparents’ Rights Attorney
The law concerning Grandparents’ Rights is constantly changing. If your grandchildren’s parents are divorcing and you fear you will no longer be allowed contact with your grandchildren, or circumstances are such that you fear for your grandchildren’s safety and wish to seek custody, contact us today.
Whether you are seeking to establish these rights or want to continue to assert your authority as your child’s primary caretaker and determine who your child is allowed to spend time with, it is essential that you retain an experienced Ventura Grandparents’ Rights Lawyer. These cases are extremely complicated, and failure to retain legal counsel may have long-lasting effects.
Grandparents’ rights are not automatic. Under current California law, grandparents may obtain visitation rights with their grandchildren if the Family Law Court Judge determines that the grandparents have a preexisting relationship with the children and granting visitation would be in the children’s best interests. However, the Court must balance the best interests of the children against their parents’ authority.
Additionally, the Court will only consider granting visitation rights (or custody) to grandparents if one or more of the following circumstances exist:
The children’s parents have divorced or separated indefinitely;
One of the parents’ whereabouts are unknown and have been for at least one month;
One parent joins in the petition with the grandparent seeking visitation rights;
The children no longer reside with either parent;
The child has been adopted by a stepparent.
If a change in circumstances occurs that would warrant modifying an order that grants the grandparents visitation or custody, the Court may revisit the issue at a later time.
