Caring attorneys representing grandparents throughout PA

Under certain circumstances, Pennsylvania law recognizes the rights of grandparents to seek visitation rights so they can remain in contact with their grandchildren. When working out if to allocate such privileges, the court always considers the best interests of the child or children. Also the court considers the amount of personal contact the child had with his or her grandparents prior to an application for visitation.

The court may be more likely to grant visitation rights to grandparents under the following circumstances:

  • A parent has passed away. If either parent is deceased, the court acknowledges the importance of the child/grandparent relationship.
  • Separated parents. In cases in which parents have never married, are married but have been separated for more than six months, or are divorced, visitation rights may be granted. For more information, contact an experienced team of Paoli family lawyers.
  • Grandchildren lived with grandparents. If your grandchildren have resided with you for more than 12 months and were removed from your home, your petition for visitation rights may be successful.

The court focuses on doing what is best for children. If the court determines that the child’s welfare is endangered under the custody and care of his or her parents, it may award custody to grandparents.
